‘Let it Go’ – SIGNED Memoir of Dame Stephanie Shirley – £10.00 p&p included
We have signed copies of this incredible autobiography by Dame Stephanie Shirley, founder of Autism at Kingwood. It tells the story of a five-year-old German girl whose parents sent her away to escape the Nazis, on one of the last Kindertransport trains out of Europe; of a young refugee who found love and acceptance with an English foster family, and who vowed that she would repay them by living “a life worth saving”; of a brilliant young woman whose pioneering computer skills were rebuffed, in the 1950s and 1960s, by sexism in the workplace; of a brave entrepreneur who defied convention by setting up her own company and defied it further by employing women working from home, and giving them the unheard of freedom to choose their own hours and manage their own workloads; of a woman who spent her wealth setting up Autism at Kingwood for her autistic son.

Autism at Kingwood Sensory Profiling Cards – Xmas Special price £15.00 (save £13.99) p&p included
What do you like? Is a set of 75 cards, each showing a different type of sensory experience, which is described in simple words and illustrated by photographic images. The cards act as visual prompts for autistic people who may be unable to verbally articulate their preferences.
In the pack there are instructions on how to use the sensory cards.
One of our support workers says: ‘The pictures enable the person we support to be more clear about what they are asking, and that makes me feel more confident about providing an appropriate answer. I also like how the picture cards will help towards involving the people we support. It is about them after all, and it’s important to give them the tools to be heard and to contribute opinions and input.’
