SuperValu and AsIAm launched an autism-friendly learning resource. The collaboration to develop a ‘learning resource toolkit’ was announced last month with Mary Immaculate College.
They wanted to produce something that would help the families that are struggling at home due to Covid-19. The lack of routine and social interaction while also being stuck at home, negatively impacts those suffering with autism.
AsIAm posted to Instagram with the announcement and said “The Bridge Back to School learning resource has been developed to help those with high support needs prepare during the summer months to return to school in September.”
They added that “20,000 of the resource booklets will be distributed to SuperValu stores nationwide and be available to pick up from Monday, July 6th in every store at identifiable points.”

Adam Harris the CEO of AsIAm said, “Not only have the changes in routine and lack of support been a challenge for autistic students but re-establishing routine will be just as challenging. The summer months present an important opportunity for Summer Provision facilitators and family members to help prepare children for the transition back to education in September, but materials and guidance are needed to do so. The Bridge Back to School resource we’re launching today will support a young person to understand, prepare and manage the return to school.”
