How you supported Sonny through lockdown

Three-year-old Sonny has epilepsy and an undiagnosed condition that affects his sight and hearing – but neither that nor lockdown has stopped him from learning new signs and growing into the cheeky, cheerful boy he is today.

When coronavirus hit and everyone went into lockdown, much of Sonny’s other support stopped, but his mum, Julie, was grateful she could still count on Sense. £15 could pay for a craft pack to be sent to a child who is deafblind, like Sonny, so they can take part in a virtual activity at home.

Catch up with Greta and see how she’s coped through the pandemic with your help

We last told you about Greta in February 2020 – before the coronavirus crisis really hit. But thanks to your support, Greta, now four years old, reached an amazing new milestone during lockdown: taking her first independent steps!

We hope that as you read about Greta’s milestones, you realise that this was all possible because of you! £97 can pay for preparation and supervision so a child who is deafblind can visit a Sense Centre with extra safety measures in place.

It’s been an emotional time for Gabriel – and that’s a good thing!

Three-year-old Gabriel started receiving support from Sense last year, so he’s never met his Sense Specialist Teacher, Jade, in person. But being able to access sessions online has been a real benefit for Gabriel and his mum Michelle.

Michelle has said, “If it was not for Sense, our son would not have received the right support that he needs. So to all the supporters out there, our family’s forever grateful.” £45 could cover a virtual session from a Sense Specialist Teacher like Jade.
