Thornbeck College is an Independent Specialist College providing personalised programmes to autistic and neurodivergent individuals

Working together to inspire, support, celebrate and equip autistic and neurodivergent people to fulfil their potential in life.

As part of personal and social development learners participated in a range of activities supporting them to increase their knowledge and understanding of personal hygiene including:

  • Identifying the importance of hair washing including the steps to follow to wash their hair and the frequency this should be completed  
  • The importance of showering including the personal hygiene products and their uses and the frequency this should be completed
  • Following visual instruction to demonstrate the appropriate hand washing technique, using a nail brush and nail clippers to ensure a good standard of hand hygiene

Participating in the activities has supported learners to develop their independent living skills and had a positive impact on their health and wellbeing.
