Increasing autonomy and control among persons requiring additional support

Dr Sandy Toogood, BEM, BCBA-D, Honorary Professor, College of Human Sciences, Bangor University

People with intellectual disabilities and autism may be deprived of opportunities and expectations for choosing that most take for granted. This talk explores the challenge of building opportunities and support within services for persons with intellectual disabilities and autism to take control of their lives. Personal routines, household customs, focused and general case teaching, together with the purposeful creation of opportunity, are proposed as mechanisms that have a history of being applied but that have not yet become common place.
