Introduction of Spectrum Star

Introduction Of The Spectrum Star

In March 2014 staff from ESPA’s residential sites received training in the use of the Spectrum Star .The Spectrum Star is an outcome tool that measures, summarises and supports change in the following key areas:

  1. Physical health;
  2. Living skills and self-care;
  3. Well-being and self-esteem;
  4. Sensory differences;
  5. Communication;
  6. Social skills;
  7. Relationships;
  8. Socially responsible behaviour;
  9. Time and activities.

It is a tool that will allow the staff team, MDT and individuals with ASC develop a person centered care and support plan that meets needs and supports potential.  The Star is reviewed on a regular basis to see how the individual is progressing. Following training the Outcome Star is now being slowly rolled out across residential and domiciliary services.
