Transcript of The Circle of Autonomy

Ability to receive and process information. Visual tracking, proprioception, auditory discrimination, recognition of objects ...
To work and progress in this field, we need to have stimuli:
- Controlled
- Customised
- Meaningful to the end user
- Primary such as vibration and/or movement

Ability to perform an action with the aim of triggering another.
The result must correspond to the user's interests. (visual effect, vibration, heat, cold, adapted toy, appliance...
The access must be adapted to the user's capabilities.
Ability to choose from various elements

We need to develop some skills:
Symbolism: pictures, photos...
Indirect access
More complex access methods like scanning, eye gaze...

Ability to apply cause and effect and choice making for meaningful activities for the user and their social context.

Active people all day
Learning curriculum concepts, through activities
Increasingly sophisticated activities
Ability to decide the environment by yourself. Capacity to be alone and make decisions about their own leisure and comfort

Concepts of self management, well-being and environment.
Partial Autonomy
Environment simplification
Ability to perform full activities yourself.

Getting in and out of the house

Explaining the chart

Considering autonomy as a continuum reinforces the importance of helping each user to rise up through the different stages of the circle.
The shape of the chart reinforces the idea that when we work on a certain stage, we are improving the abilities of the lower stages.
The stage of self-determination may be the newest. It has allowed us to gain new clients.
The different stages are connected. A user can be working on multiple stages simultaneously.

Not everyone will arrive at the stage of autonomy, but progress is our mission.
Adults with physical disabilities (ALS, MS, spinal injury, distrophy...)
Children with physical disabilities
People with physical and cognitive disabilities (Cerebral palsy, brain injury, MS, Rett Syndrome...)
People who only have cognitive disabilities without any problem on a physical level

Schools should teach Autonomy
Multisensory rooms become a privileged place to help users to rise up within the circle.
People who is not in the stage of autonomy can take advantage of environmental control
Possibility of using multisensory resources outside the multisensory room to facilitate the learning process
Opportunity using environmental control products by people with intellectual disabilities even if they don't have physical disability.
The residences, rehabilitation centers and other facilities must be ready to speed up the user's progress,
expanding your existing markets
accessing new ones.
