Self Help Skills Unit

Self Help Skills Unit

In the self help skills unit

People learn to dress themselves

Wash them selves

Feed themselves

Use the toilet by them selves

In the S H S U

Patients form an orderly queue

While the staff sit around drinking coffee

With clipboards recording what they do

 

Verbal prompt gestural prompt

Physical prompt RESULT

Score the task log the graph

Feed it back RESULT

 

In the self help skills unit

The toasters on the blink

Ted the union steward

Puts his feet up on the sink

The charge nurse goes home early

The student’s tidy up

Practicing their injections

They have assessments coming up

 

Verbal prompt gestural prompt

Physical prompt RESULT

Score the task log the graph

Feed it back RESULT

 

In the self help skills unit

People cannot lose themselves

Remove themselves forget themselves

Become another version of themselves…

Its two-way mirror observation

Take your jumper on and off

Clean your teeth [comb your hair]

Wash your hands [flush the chain]

Until they press the stop-watch

They press the stop…watch

 

Verbal prompt gestural prompt

Physical prompt RESULT

Score the task log the graph

Feed it back RESULT
