Rotary in The Straits Meeting

Rotary in the Strait – Ceuta project – Autism Aids
Members visited Ceuta on the 26th October 2019 for a meeting with RC Ceuta and RC Tangier to finalise Ceuta’s Strait Club project.
People with autism do not have the same response to verbal communication and some may be unable to reciprocate. Visual images help enormously with overcoming some of these problems. In Ceuta they have a centre where children are helped and the Ceuta project aims to provide 2 Interactive Whiteboards for group use and 10 slightly larger than tablet size touchpads for individual use at the centre.
