The STAR Framework is applied to support requests relevant to people who have a need to develop skills in areas that are related to complex behaviour support where earlier clinical support options have not proved successful. ADHC collaborated with CDS to evaluate the efficacy of the implementation of the three stages of the STAR framework.
The evaluation approach included document analysis and a series of case studies. The team that worked on the project brought not only research skills but also field experience in the area of behaviour support. The final report was completed and delivered to ADHC at the end of 2016. It outlined the efficacy of the framework and included a summary and full report.
