Ffynnon Non is a residential home that specialises in providing person-centred care and support for up to four adults with autism spectrum conditions, Asperger’s, learning disabilities, communication difficulties, and behaviour that may challenge.
We believe that people we support are unique and that individuality should be emphasised to ensure that the support given is true to their needs, choices, and beliefs. The support team encourage people to believe in their potential and to make positive steps towards achieving individual goals, regardless of presumed ability.
Working with multidisciplinary teams, Ffynnon Non uses combined strategies such as PBS (Positive Behaviour Support) and Speech-Language Therapy to achieve greater direction towards independence. Specialist communication techniques such as British Sign Language (BSL) and Picture Exchange (PECS) are also used to support people who have little or non-verbal communication to ensure person-centred planning around their personal goals and preferences.
To help us better understand a person’s interests, strengths, gifts, and support needs, we always complete an initial autism profile for anyone seeking our support. This makes it easier for team members to understand the individual’s form of the condition and to identify cognitive abilities that may require focus.
