“We’re helping the community…we’re changing the world!”
Some of our pupils took the first step in what we hope will be the start of something incredible! They visited three cafés in our local area and asked them if they would help us on our quest to make our community more communication friendly.
The girls eloquently explained the importance of being able to support those who have communication difficulties and told the staff that “we all have a right to a voice”.
All three venues in Urmston agreed to display our visual communication supports and the staff at Lily’s at Eden and Sainsburys were fantastic when it came to supporting the children to use the visuals to order some drinks and snacks. Having this support enabled the girls to be independent and had a great impact on confidence and self-esteem. Kenzi said “I did it!”
If you visit Costa Lily’s Cafe or Sainsburys café in Urmston make sure to tag us on our Social Media pages of you using our communication supports! We can’t wait to see and hear about all your fantastic communication in the community.
