The Puzzle Centre in Middle Claydon were delighted when their application to the BMCF for £4000 was approved recently.
The money enabled the centre to purchase desks and seating for their Outreach Team as well as nursery furniture and materials for their Picture Exchange Communications System (PECS)
The Puzzle Centre is a charity which promotes and delivers early intervention for young children with Autism or communication difficulties and provides training and outreach to families and practitioners across the UK. Materials purchased with the grant will help to make picture cards and emotion fobs which allow non-verbal children to express themselves and for parents and teachers to give simple instructions.
Sarah Dolder, from The Puzzle Centre, thanked the BMCF for the donation and included comments from parents whose child had benefitted and progressed due to the use of the PECS system and the interventions of the centre.
