Adam Clive Anderson
Hi Everyone, I would like you to meet Adam! His Communication Passport has been put together based on several other Passports. Adam faces Sensory Processing Disorder and his family have worked hard to help his teachers, and anyone else involved in his support, understand how to best meet his sensory needs. I have also included PICA in Adam’s Passport, as this is a serious behaviour which can be life threatening and which needs careful monitoring and support.
Epilepsy is another feature in Adam’s Communication Passport, as children and adults with learning disabilities often have more health problems to deal with, and Epilepsy is a condition that has affects many children; so we felt it would be useful to all readers to create insight on how they might document it.
Laura is a young adult with Wiedemann-Steiner syndrome. This affects her in multiple ways. She has no concept of danger and requires one-to-one care. When she’s in a good mood she likes to socialise, sing, and tell stories. She also loves carrying her microwavable ‘Fido’ toy with her at all times.
Daniel is a young adult with Autism Spectrum Disorder and mild learning difficulties. This affects him in his abilities to learn new skills and to process complex social information.
His biggest wish is to lead a fully independent life. We hope his Passport will help him to one day reach that goal.
Calum is a young adult with Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. He also has sensory and communication difficulties.
Calum had some problems finding the right support for his needs, you can read his full story (and its happy ending) from the site’s main menu.
The Template Guide provides information on common tools you need to know about to edit the template. Additionally, there is information about each page and the kind of thing that we have found helpful when building Laura’s Passport. Some of this relates to content, some of it relates to presentation and accessibility of information.
This template was created in Microsoft PowerPoint. Laura’s Passport was not made using this program, but we’ve tried to make you a version that closely resembles what we have done which is also easy to edit and adapt. For explanations of the pages and the text that we’ve included, and guidance on how to make changes, check out the Template Guide.
