Welcome to Reflect
Based in Taunton in Somerset, Reflect is a specialist daytime support service for adults with profound and multiple learning disabilities. Our focus is on high quality, one to one activities that develop awareness, communication skills and well being. Our commitment is to improve lives every day.
Reflect is a new service established by people with a passion for improving the lives of people who are too often overlooked by society.
We use a range of techniques including Intensive Interaction, sensory story telling, messy play and musical interventions to build skills and improve awareness. We also ensure the people we work with experience the outdoors and increase opportunities to be part of the community they live in.
A day spent with Reflect will be a day of activity, development, one to one focus and care. We spend time understanding the people we work with, recording their awareness, activity levels and the abilities they demonstrate. Then, over time and working on a one to one basis with familiar staff, we start to unlock their potential.
Intensive Interaction is a practical technique that uses close focus on reflecting verbal and non verbal actions to understand and develop communication skills.
Using story telling to combine sensory experiences of sound, music, textures, light and imagery enables our customers to express themselves and develop deeper connections with the world around them.
