From Parral (Seventh Region, Chile),we get this initiative carried out by Yessenia Gatica Retamal,Coordinator of the TEA Team of the Luis Armando Gómez School.
The inclusive menuaims to promote autonomy and decision-making in the purchase of products in fast food places for people with difficulties in communication and cognitive accessibility with the visual support of the ARASAAC pictograms, although it can also be used in the case of those people who cannot read and who have difficulties in handling money. The idea is that the different food places of our commune, can count on this modality, which provides facilities to order the products they want.
The inclusive menu is made under the TEACCH methodology,so that users can manipulate the products that appear there embodied under pictograms and place them on a support that is then delivered to the person who is going to attend us in the restaurant Each page of the book contains the product that the place offers and the food it contains, in addition to the price.
In the images, we can see the official delivery of the booklet of “inclusive letter” in the fast food place “El Gasca” by the mayor of the city, Paula Retamal.
