Marty is 53 years old and suffers from quadriplegia. He lives in a state government-funded group home and spent days with an undiagnosed broken left leg. Due to his condition, he was not able to verbally communicate his levels of pain and symptoms, including a protruding bone that went unnoticed by the staff on duty. After two days a staff member raised concerns to management; however, they decided it was best to wait until the next day to contact a doctor for treatment. Did the staff exercise their duty of care? Explain your answer.

The staff always have trouble with Jodie when it comes to taking her medications, as she becomes physically challenging towards staff on duty. Jodie has an intellectual disability and tends to become irritable quite frequently.

INSTRUCTIONS:

The purpose of this task is for your assessor to observe how well you can respond to a critical incident involving adverse behaviour in a simulated environment, using appropriate support strategies and communication.

First you will need to watch the YouTube video titled Autism, Self-Injurious Behavioral Interventions.

You can find this video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXbe2VHa37w.

The video shows the self-injurious behaviour of James, who has severe autism and epilepsy. James is seen repeatedly hitting his head in a violent manner with both hands.

After you have watched the video, you will need to participate in a role play with your assessor playing the role of James. James has just been disturbed by a car going past and squealing its brakes.

You will be required to do the following during the role play:

  • Use appropriate interventions and positive behavioral support strategies.
  • Use a person-centred approach.
  • Address safety requirements and procedures.
  • Use effective communication strategies to meet James’s needs. James’s behavioural management plan states the following:

James is often startled by loud noises, which cause a buzzing in his head.

He becomes self-injurious, hitting himself around the head involuntarily. He may also experience a seizure.

James only ever hits himself – never anyone or anything else.

James responds to wearing headphones to reduce noise stimulus. These should be put on as soon as possible during an incident.

James may wear padded mitts to prevent injury.

James will respond to calm, repetitive instructions.

Holding James’s hands in his lap reduces the risk of injury and can be calming. James does not find this restrictive.

James reacts badly to sudden loud noises, shouting, complicated instructions, laughing or panic by anyone near him.

James behaviour can be diverted by drawing his attention to objects he enjoys – for example, watching the ceiling fan, his pet dog, his toys and other family members.

Your assessor will be looking to see that you:

▪ Identify the triggers that cause James’s adverse behaviour.

▪ Respond to James in an appropriate manner, correctly carrying out behavioural strategies in response to his behaviour.

For example remaining calm, being consistent, showing empathy, following the details in his behavioural management plan, etc

▪ Consider and acknowledge James’s needs, strengths, capabilities and his preferences.

For example, acknowledge attempts made by James to control his behaviour; his likes and dislikes; keeping instructions simple; need for particular intervention strategies, etc.

▪ Make sure James’s environment is safe.

For example, by protecting James’s head and hands; by keeping your own self safe; reducing possibility of his triggers occurring again, etc

▪ Acknowledge James’s emotional state.

For example, by demonstrating empathy, acknowledging his distress, acknowledging him as he calms down, etc

ASSESSMENT TASK 3: CASE STUDY

1. Is the behaviour support plan for TJ person centred? Explain your answer.

2. Why is it important to note TJ’s likes and dislikes?

3. Are TJ’s needs, strengths and capabilities considered and supported in the strategies? What are they?

4. Describe the context in which the behaviour of concern is displayed.

5. What are the triggers that cause TJ to harm others?

6. In your own words, describe the frequency and duration of TJ’s behaviour.

7. What are the positive behaviour support strategies? 8. Were the strategies effective? Why/Why not?

9. Are his behaviours of concerned clearly documented in the plan? Explain your answer.

10. From the plan, are you able to ascertain what medications are required for TJ? Where do you find this information and what medication is prescribed?

11. What is the de-escalation strategy for assessing safety?

12. Are referral services noted in this plan?

13. Who are the key people involved in this plan?
