Day 13 of #AsIAmChallenge: Make Written Communications Clear

### LOOK WHATS JUST ARRIVED!!! ###

We've managed to secure Abbeyleix's first and only ALF Trolley!

An ALF (Autism Lifeskills Friend) Trolley was designed by Tony and Theresa O'Donovan from Togher, Co. Cork who have a 16 year old autistic son. They wanted to create something that made shopping a more enjoyable experience for him.

"The trolley looks like a regular trolley but has a clipboard attached and a 'finished' box at the base of the clipboard," says Tony. "Parents can download images of the groceries they need (bananas, milk etc) and attach them to the board. Once the groceries have been found instore and placed in the trolley, the child can then remove the image from the board and place it in the 'finished' box."

Theresa says that a visual schedule is very important for children with autism. "They need to know what's coming next, and by using this trolley and the images, they can see a beginning, a middle and an end. This then reduces their anxiety within a supermarket environment."

The trolley is available in store at all times for those who may need it.Please ask at checkouts for Pecs.

My name is Niamh Hackett. I go to yoga class at the Greenhouse project in Dun Laoghaire. I have a really nice yoga teacher called Enya. It is an advanced class called yoga deep flow and it is tough. It is a brilliant exercise and Enya helps you in the poses. I love when Wednesday evening comes.
