Tall Trees, learning disability day service (Goldie Leigh Hospital site).

Tall Trees is a day service for individuals with complex learning disabilities, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and challenging behaviour, on our Goldie Leigh site. All the service users have significant receptive and expressive communication difficulties and many struggle to communicate.

Since a review in 2015, staff have changed many of the ways they work, to improve communication with patients and better support patients.

A range of appropriate visual communication resources have been developed and successfully implemented.

Dean Castle, emotional wellbeing mentor
