What is JAM Card© and who is it for?
JAM Card© allows people with a learning difficulty, autism or communication barrier tell others they need ‘Just A Minute’ discreetly and easily.
Those with a communication barrier are often reluctant or unable to tell others about their condition. JAM Card© allows this to happen in a simple, effective non-verbal manner.
JAM Card© was originally developed for those with learning disabilities and difficulties. However, it can be used by anyone with a communication barrier.
For instance, JAM Card© can be used by people with Asperger’s or autism. It can also be used by those who have suffered brain injuries and people who otherwise feel self-conscious about their ability to effectively communicate when engaging with others.
