They are short descriptions of a particular situation, event or activity, which include specific information about what to expect in that situation and why.

The initiative expands on the current resources available, such as sensory places, sensory toys and quiet time, and plays a role in making County Tipperary an autism friendly place. Click on the text below to view or download:
