Sonderwell steps in to support
Sonderwell were asked to support Adam and his family through the provision of oneafternoon and one night whilst Adam went to a respite centre. As he is non verbal hisoutward behaviour, including faecal smearing, could be considered directly proportional tohis measure of contentment.

demonstrated by the fact that there has not been a single incident of faecal smearing.
