Kimberley moved to Sunnyside House in November 2013. Kimberley was quite shy when she moved in and required quite a bit of prompting to carry out tasks such as making breakfast, communicating and carrying out personal hygiene tasks. Although there have been challenges around behaviour and gaining professional input through counselling, Kimberley has made significant improvement and her independence skills have widened. Kimberley would not hold a conversation and would just nod at whatever she was asked. Kimberley now trusts the staff and other learners and through teaching her communication skills she is very vocal. Kimberley is able to hold a conversation and express her wants and needs. Kimberley has volunteered at the local community centre with children and has really enjoyed this. Kimberley continues her journey towards independence with the help of the My Life Programme and Support Plans.
