Do-IT Profiler is currently used in numerous prisons across the UK and has been used in NEET, YOI and adult offending settings.
Experience, research, and testing from the past ten years have allowed the development of a suite of tools developed specifically for assessing Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (LDD) in this context and delivering a person-centered approach (aligning to The Coates Review, 2016).
The Learning Difficulties and Disabilities assessment modules for offending settings not only ask about social, communication, literacy, numeracy, attention and coordination skills but also provide personalised guidance for those working in the offending setting and for the individual.
Alongside the screening tools, other background information is collated regarding relevant educational and medical history, and also their current social settings and potential challenges.
Additional modules are available for education( Literacy, Numeracy and ICT) , support mental health and well being, and to aid the development of skills or work and preparing the offender for resettlement.
Guidance is provided in a variety of formats to support the individual’s learning style, including Word documents, video, fact sheets and MP3 files to aid accessibility.
