My Menu Book - an interactive Menu communication book designed by Amanda Mc Guinness with high contrasting imagery together with a page by page white background with clear boundaries denoted by blue boundary.
My Menu Book was inspired by Amanda's young son Conor who is autistic and non-speaking. Amanda designed the My Menu Book to support her young son when out and about. Conor is autistic and relies ACC to have his communicative needs met. Amanda noticed Conor was struggling to have his voice heard in Cafés and restaurants so she set about designing the My Menu book to support her young son.
When out and about, Amanda brings along the "My Menu Book" so Conor is supported wherever he goes.
