As far as I can remember, Ashley originally asked for help because he has started working in a supported role in a garden centre to help with his recovery from a brain injury acquired in an accident. I think I'm right in saying that he told us that he has short term memory problems as a result of the brain injury.
I've worked with people with acquired brain injury as has Wonky ... the fact that Ashley finds it hard to learn and also hard to remember what he's asked us and what we've replied is, in my experience, quite typical of someone with his difficulties.
I know that we've been targetted by some trouble makers in the past, but I'd rather risk being taken for a ride than not offer help to someone in Ashley's circumstances.
