The STAR 25 Programme at Inspire provides specific intervention for a group of young men and women with profound multiple learning disabilities, meeting their individual needs through objectives set by a professional multi-disciplinary team.
We provide continuous assessment and intervention delivered by professionals who work collaboratively with each individual to maintain, enhance and maximise their quality of life and independence. We achieve this by providing a therapeutic environment with stimulating and adaptive resources to support the development of physical, cognitive, emotional and social skills, to each person’s unique level of ability.
We aim to create a therapeutic environment, where these individuals have the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential in a fun and relaxed environment.
The programme runs 25 hours, Monday to Friday, for 45 weeks per year.
Those attending the programme receive a range of therapies such as the more traditional physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language pathology and hydrotherapy; as well as the more diverse such as multi-sensory therapy.
They also have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities, both individually and as a group. These include crafts, pottery, cookery, human-animal interaction, music and movement, as well as a range of outings. All activities are adapted to the needs and abilities of the individual to ensure they gain maximum benefit.
