At Remap we recognise that many of the people we help are at particular risk from coronavirus. In addition, our free service is provided by a network of volunteers, many of whom are retired and at additional risk themselves.

Our priority is to keep everyone safe so we are avoiding face to face contact where possible. You can find our policy statement here. As ever, please contact your nearest Remap group for their advice.

Keep well and stay safe!

Play it again Sam!

Boy with games

Sam loads a new game

Sam loves his games and the TV like any 12 year old, but finds it difficult to control his actions when he’s feeling angry- he has autism which causes this problem. He has a habit of taking out his temper on his TV, PC monitor, speakers or the sound system and has broken three since Christmas. After he has broken something he is distraught, and is likely to take his anger out on his parents, or his younger sister. Sam and his family needed a solution which was provided by Brian Waters, a volunteer with Remap Great Yarmouth.

Brian has enclosed the monitors, TV and speakers in a bespoke cupboard, with a shatterproof plastic screen. Understanding that the equipment is now safely enclosed has helped Sam moderate his behaviour, and seems to remove the temptation to damage it.
