Goal Mastery

Your life. Your way. Your choice.


Goal Mastery™

SASI specialises in evidence-based care for people with autism. This outcome-driven approach helps participants achieve their full potential.

Why is evidence-based care so important?

ASD care is constantly improving. SASI aims to  provide the best care possible to ensure  participants  reach their full potential. If a better    way is found, SASI looks at incorporating these  changes promptly into services and care programs.

Goal Mastery Process

SASI’s uses the Goal Mastery™ Program to break down Support Plan goals into smaller tasks that can be measured with data. This assists with SASI’s change process.


Many interventions exist for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), yet scientific research has found only some of these interventions to be effective. The interventions that researchers have shown to be effective are called evidence–based practices (EBPs).



What does evidence-based care mean for your family?

SASI monitors and evaluates services continually to improve effectiveness. Participant data is collected via a cutting-edge CMS (Client Management System). This provides the tool for staff to monitor participants daily. This data is then measured against participant goals and SASI’s outcome-driven strategic plan. The data makes the resulting constant improvement possible.


SASI’s Participant Planning Framework produces the following:

  • Person Centred Plans (PCPs)
  • Support Plans (SPs)
  • Behaviour Support Plans (BSPs)

Person Centred Plan (PCP)

SASI works with participants and their support networks to write a PCP. This plan helps individual participants identify their dreams and goals.

Support Plan

The Support Plan includes a participant’s long-term goals. This plan helps participants create milestones related to their goals and dreams. The support plan can also include staff, equipment, family goals or other items that can help a participant reach their current and future potential.
Note: SASI’s uses the Goal Mastery™ Program to break down Support Plan goals into smaller tasks that can be measured with data. This assists with SASI’s change process.

Behaviour Support

SASI has a best practice, dedicated system in place to monitor trends in participant behaviour. Behaviour can signal the need for change. These are logged and analysed regularly. Recommendations on changes to a participant’s program or extra support can then be made.


SASI recognises communication as a human right. Participants face communication difficulties daily and SASI creates practical plans that ‘speak’ to each individual participant. These plans are personalised and presented to each participant in a format they can understand. For example, plans can be in the form of video stories, posters, easy-to-read English or photo boards.
SASI has a dedicated communications coordinator who develops and maintains a Communication Resource Library. The staff member in this role offers solutions to communication challenges via a mix of expert communication and tech tools.


Participant health is directly related to life        satisfaction  and comfort. SASI promotes physical    health and also uses systems, processes and   reporting tools to regularly monitor a participant’s   health. This ensures the best health outcomes   possible for all participants. The SASI team works   with  a range of health professionals to meet health   outcomes and conducts regular monitoring of health   issues.


Families of people need to ensure their loved one’s safety and security. This is why SASI encourages a participant’s family and friends to offer feedback. All concerns and questions are welcome.
The SASI Board endorses the following policies. These are regularly reviewed and the outcomes of each are monitored:

  • Code of Conduct
  • Participant complaints
  • Participant Privacy
