TRALEE is aiming to become an Autism Friendly Town and as part of achieving that ambition, Tralee Municipal District has installed a Communication Board in the playground at Tralee Town Park.

The board, which is the first of its kind in Kerry County Council managed playgrounds, will assist those with disabilities to communicate in different ways by pointing to a picture on the board to better convey what they wish to do.

The Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Terry O Brien welcomed the new Communication Board stating that: ‘The playground sign is an innovative approach for creating a more inclusive experience for all to enjoy.

We will be moving forward in 2021 with the effort to make Tralee an Autism Friendly Town and hope to have the backing of retail, leisure and hospitality communities as we roll out other initiatives,’ she said.
