Allan moved into Sunnyside House in September 2008. When Allan first moved in he had chosen not to talk for several years. With the support of staff and numerous 1:1 sessions Allan started to talk again. This was a very significant time for both Allan and Sunnyside. It was from then that we were really able to support Allan to progress himself towards independence. Allan is now living one of our flats and is doing really well. There have been challenges along the way such as Allan struggling to manage his emotions which led to outbursts of anger and aggression, this has improved though behaviour therapy, relaxation therapy and the My Life Programme. Allan is still working on this however the improvement is significant. Allan is very knowledgeable when it comes to independence and continues to progress well in the flat.
