In our Autumn edition of 'Reaching Out’ you can find out more about how your kind gifts are helping to open up the world to children who are deafblind.
Discover how Sense has been supporting Abigail from when she was just a baby. Abigail attends our Early Explorers group where her mum, Lyndsey, has been able to learn how best to stimulate the senses her little girl does have. It’s been wonderful to see how Abigail responds to all the sensory toys she discovers at Early Explorers, from bubble tubes to fibre optic lights.
'Reaching Out' introduced you to Ambra five years ago, when she was just four years old. Since then, Ambra has made many small steps forward, learning new skills and gaining confidence. You can read about her wonderful progress on page two.
For a child like Ted whose twin brother Ernie is deafblind, a Sense Sibling Weekend gives him the chance to meet other children with similar experiences. At a Sibling Weekend, children like Ted can grow in confidence and independence whilst enjoying a fun-filled break from the realities of life at home. You can read more about what Ted got up to on page four.
