Our Eden based Job Coach Sarah Richardson has had an interesting challenge of late.
She has been working with an autistic young man with significant issues in the Eden Valley.
Sarah: “We have been doing our utmost to encourage him to attend the Appleby Hub with little success so far. But he does love the piano in the Hub….A photograph of the piano seemed to resonate with him and he showed some interest in this. Therefore, I persuaded my sister to play whilst I took a video. We’ve uploaded the video in a simple, no frills format with my sister playing to help the young man progress and pop into the Appleby Hub. As he will not view emails, WhatsApp messages etc. which are sent to his parents, our only option is to load to YouTube and ask that he watches the video.”
So this is one of our more unusual tasks on the R2W website……lets see if we can reach out virtually! -Click on the vid….
We will keep you posted on whether this was in ‘tune” with our young man!
