At ECL Saffron Walden we can provide support for a range of customer needs including those with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD), mild and moderate learning disabilities, autism, and related health conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes and dysphagia.
Depending on your level of need and your Care and Support Plan we can provide 2:1, 1:1 and group support.
We have access to ECL's own in-house clinical team for guidance and support in the areas of physiotherapy, occupational support, speech and language, and positive behaviour support. We can also work with other health and social care professionals and providers of living accommodation to ensure that all aspects of your life are coordinated and the best they can be.
Our day centre support staff receive all mandatory training such as emergency first aid and safeguarding, as well as extensive additional training to enable them to provide specialist support. This includes training in the areas of communication (Makaton, Object of Reference, Intensive Interaction, Pictorial Communication Boards and PECS), eating and feeding (IDSSI diets and enteral feeding), and sensory awareness.
