How can Therapy in Praxis deliver the Personalisation agenda?
Personalisation demands a shift in approach, away from the constraints of resource led/stereotype provision to one where both service users, [including family and caregivers] are empowered to make choices on the solutions to their individual and unique needs.
The philosophy of Therapy in Praxis is founded on the concept that occupation is essential to human existence and good health and wellbeing.
Occupation includes all the things that people do or participate in e.g. working, learning, playing, caring and interacting with others. Being deprived of or having limited access to occupation can affect physical and mental health.
Therapy in Praxis supports children and adolescents to optimise their potential and to engage in a range of meaningful activities throughout their daily lives so that they can achieve their aspirations.
Therapy in Praxis has always taken a child- and person- centred approach, which is consistent with the principles and practice of personalisation.
Therapy in Praxis uses a recognised person- centred process of assessment, intervention and review to achieve outcomes through engagement in fulfilling and meaningful occupation that’s right for the individual and recognises the child or adolescent as an individual.
This aligns with the values of personalisation, as Therapy in Praxis is skilled in finding and tailoring individual solutions for the child and family in different settings and can work with all providers.
The role of Therapy in Praxis in improving quality of life and as a facilitator of learning means seeking collaborative ways of working with the children who use our services, their families and carers, friends and other social care and health practitioners to co-design and co-produce care and support.
