Say Hi to our new buddy Joe! He is 17, and he lives in beautiful Devon with his Mum, Dad, and his older brother. Joe loves the Tweenies and Balamory. Joe can’t talk or chew, and he has a profound learning disability and Autism. Today we are searching for a specific drinking beaker, not manufactured in well over ten years, they usually have Disney characters or popular television characters on them. They consist of a beaker, a lid and a straw.
The beaker body that we need is slightly wider at the top than the bottom and flares out at the top. The lid is rounded (this is very important as some versions of the beaker have domed or flat lids) with a small tab on one side. We are searching for BEAKERS AND/OR LIDS – we do not need the bendy straws. It is the shape and the feel of the beaker that is important to Joe, he does not mind what colour or character it is, even pink would be great!
Joe can’t talk or chew, and he has a profound learning disability and Autism, which means that he is a 12-month-old baby in a teenager’s hormonal body (eek!) It takes us a long time to help him learn new skills but we have a great time celebrating with a party when he eventually gets there and learns something new. Parents of children with autism will get it!
The way this works is not magic, it’s all about SHARING. If you want to help Joe find some Plastic Beakers and/or lids we need you to like and share this search with all your family and friends, but importantly, we need you to tell them to do the same.
Chances are none of our amazing Followers has one of these in a cupboard, but if you all share it, and those people share it too, and so on, someone down the line may well have one, and if they see the picture pop up in their feed they may well be able to help Joe.
Liking and commenting is good too!
