Loan Library notes for supporting people on the Autistic Spectrum
Via Barrie Ellis at Thurrock Lifestyle Solutions with thanks to Kim Darby and Jamie Knight.


Books: http://thegirlwiththecurlyhair.co.uk/books/ - Some excellent books from Alis Rowe.
Thomas the Tank Engine books (e.g. BookPeople.co.uk – Thomas Classic 70th Anniversary Collection – 26 books £20). Common favourite for many. 

The Reason I Jump - Naoki Higashida. Fantastic book.

iPads / iPod touch (cheaper): sensory apps, communication apps (e.g. Proloquo2go / Proloquo4Text/Assistive Express – cheaper ones – Auto Verbal, AzuleJoe?), Guided Access with timer and password….age controls…… Advice on safer use….. Messenger apps to have a group of trusted people to ask for help from.

Toys: fidget toys…. Bath-time toys….. Lego…… “With lego, to make sure its easy to identify, wash it in a bowl and pour an Ultraviolet (UV) highlighter pens ink into the water. Then you can easily identify your lego with a UV light should it get mixed up with someone elses collection…… Don’t stick the stickers on lego models…… Duplo and Lego Junior is good too………. Good to suggest a range of activities. Some autistic people will want the structure of following the instructions, others will want a big box of bricks to play with. Others still may benefit from building just one part of a larger model…….       Thomas the tank engine is a common favourite…….  Chew Tubes “fantastic sensory toy!” https://www.amazon.co.uk/chewy-tubes/s?ieUTF8&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Achey%20tubes  - via Jamie Knight.

Rise of the State Cinema (TEN-TV Grays)

STATE Cinema.

STATE Cinema - Barriers outside the cinema as construction begins.

STATE Cinema - Barriers outside the cinema as construction begins.

STATE Cinema - cinema.


The 1938 Grays State Cinema, has been in many forms, a cinema, night club and soon, a pub. After closure it was used in the film Roger Rabbit and the Jamiroquai video for the Godzilla sound track.

We wish the new owners (Wetherspoons) good luck, and hope they take really good care of it because it's a really beautiful building. Thanks for reading. Lee TEN-TV.
