Least Restrictive Practice

Least Restrictive Practice promotes a strengths based and person-centred approach to delivering care and support while minimising the use of restraint. This approach can be used with individuals with a learning disability who have complex needs and may present with behaviour that challenges. This includes people who also have autism or Asperger’s as well as a learning disability. Least Restrictive Practice encompasses several approaches, including Positive Behaviour Support, Restriction Reduction, person-centred planning, communication, and effective recording and monitoring.
