This Collection of Keycards is perfect for people who have difficulties in communication, in a range of areas, listening, understanding and processing, as well as being able to say what we want to say, when we want to say it. This doesn’t necessarily need to be all the time. Sometimes it is because of the situation we are in, such as a noisy environment, because we are in pain, tired, stressed, or because the situation we are in is stressful. Sometimes we just don’t feel like talking at all.
These difficulties are common in Autistic people, but can relate to most people, particularly those who have severe pain or long term ill health. This range of cards aims to help with most situations, helping to explain to people what they can do to help.
