How to manage this:

With early intervention and knowledge of known triggers, Jason’s behaviour can be managed. Distraction techniques can be effective when managing Jason’s behaviour. Jason should be asked to go to his room when warning signs of impending behaviour occurs as this is a safety measure for other tenants and staff.

To go through Jason’s routine board with him every morning so he is aware of what tasks needs to be completed that day. It will need to be explained that the less appealing activities such as room management must be completed before desired activities such as going for a walk or going to the park.
