What is a 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 a brain injury and people who otherwise feel self-conscious about their ability to effectively communicate when engaging with others.
Together with the NOW Group, we have committed to becoming the first retailer to become Just A Minute (JAM) Card friendly across our network of stores on the island of Ireland. Alongside this we are sponsoring 6,000 JAM Cards which contributes towards keeping the cards free and accessible to those who need them.
