Intensive Support Team
The Intensive Support Team leaflet provides more information.
The Intensive Support Team acn provide intensive support to adults with a learning disability who need extra support. This support is also available to adults with complex or severe behavioural issues, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, mental health issues who require urgent help.
Support from the intensive support team is available for a limited period of time to help manage or overcome a certain issue or problem. The support may include advice over the telephone or meetings.
The team works with the individual to find out why they find some things difficult to deal with; teach them new skills; make choices so you can be part of your local community; they teach family and carers new skills so they can help you to deal with things; listen and work with them and all the people who look after them to make their life better and happier.
The support will be reviewed to ensure it continues to meet their needs. Referrals to the Intensive Support Team are made by the Adult Learning Disability Service.
