Woodland View, Hertfordshire
Woodland View provides 24/7 support and care for children and young people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs. The home can support young people with a range of additional needs and learning disabilities, including Autistic Spectrum Condition, ADHD, social communication issues and associated behavioural and medical needs. Due to the complex needs and challenging behaviour, each child/young person has an individual, tailored care plan. These will highlight key areas of support for each child/young person, focussing on the sensory, auditory, emotional and physical needs of each of the young people.
Our work is based on our model of delivering therapeutic child centred services, which incorporates the delivery of Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) evolved through over 50 years of working with children and young people. At Woodland View we do not employ a sanction based system in which children/young people receive sanctions for undesirable actions and behaviours. Instead naturally occurring consequences and reaffirming positive behaviour are used as this is a better fit with the Positive Behaviour Support Model.
The mission of the children’s home at Woodland View is to support the children and young people in acquiring skills and experiences, so that they may take their rightful place in society, feel valued and are contributing members of society. We aim to stabilise the lives of young people that come to live with us, and develop their potential.
Woodland View offers a stable, secure and supportive environment, in which the children we care for can develop the skills and confidence necessary to help them fulfil their potential. We provide individualised and child centred approaches, and work with each young person to build a bespoke package of care.
At MacIntyre every child matters, regardless of the behaviours, issues or complications they bring with them.
