Within the timetable for Summer Club there was a trip to the Aquarium.
This young man has a particular interest in fish and sea life. However, we knew the expectation of taking him to the aquarium was a huge undertaking due to his unpredictable behaviour and high levels of anxiety.
The Hollow Lane Club management liaised closely with the Aquarium who agreed for him to enter through a separate entrance at a quiet time and this was enabled by the provision of 3:1 ratio staff who also transported him separately.
As you can see, it was very successful and he even touched the tank to interact with the fish. Although it was only a short visit it was extremely worthwhile to see the enjoyment on his face. His mum was overwhelmed that this had been facilitated.
