Case study (questions 1–8)

Sam is a support worker for a small regional service that supports people with disabilities. Rick uses the service. Rick is Indigenous Australian, and has a mild intellectual disability. Rick loves outdoor activities, such as rock climbing, sailing and bushwalking. Unfortunately the service is small and receives limited funding, so Rick has not been given much opportunity to explore his interests.

Rick is also very social. He loves people, and especially loves talking to people.

Rick has just started shelf stocking at the local supermarket. His supervisor, Will, has not had much time to train him, but has complained to Sam about Rick’s behaviour. He says Rick is distracted, irritable and never completes a task, and when he’s asked to do something, he often ignores the request.

Sam meets with Rick and his mother Helen to discuss some options and look at ways they could potentially enhance Rick’s lifestyle.

Case study (questions 9–13)

Maahir works as a disability support worker. One of the people he supports is Naomi, who uses a wheelchair, and has autism. Naomi is 16. In recent months, Naomi’s behaviour has changed significantly. She’s been biting and hitting staff, raising her voice at staff and other people in support, and refusing to comply with requests.

Maahir and his team look at Naomi’s individualised behaviour support plan. At this stage, there is no current information about Naomi’s behaviours of concern, as the behaviours are quite recent. The individualised support plan says that Naomi’s agitation increases in the evening, and meditation techniques or a bath are recommended.

Maahir’s supervisor, Karen, organises for an integrated assessment to take place. As part of the assessment, she asks Maahir and other team members to observe Naomi’s behaviour, and record the type, frequency and triggers of the behaviours of concern to try and identify context.

Maahir observes that Naomi tends to become stressed at the end of the day around meal time. When she is asked to eat, she refuses, and then her behaviour escalates. Most of the biting and hitting behaviour happens around this time. Her behaviour tends to escalate most evenings, and results in hitting and biting at least twice a week. These days usually correspond with family visits. Naomi’s mother and sister visit twice a week. Sometimes they take Naomi on an outing.

Case study (questions 14–21)

Naomi uses a wheelchair and has autism. Her behaviours of concern are that she hits and bites staff when she becomes agitated in the evenings.

At this stage, one of the interventions used has been to try and ask Naomi to count her breaths. This only makes Naomi more agitated. One intervention that has been successful has been to run Naomi a warm bath.

When Naomi’s behaviour has significantly escalated, however, some support workers have wheeled Naomi to her room and locked the door. This usually worsens her behaviour. Eventually she calms down and falls asleep. Maahir, one of Naomi’s support workers, is concerned about this practice as it does not seem right and is not detailed in Naomi’s support plan. He talks to his supervisor about the practice, and his supervisor agrees that this is against regulations.

The next day, Naomi is wheeled to her room, and her door is locked. While in her room, Naomi bangs her head badly. She becomes quiet. When Maahir checks on her, he sees she is unconscious.
