Jody's Story

Ten year old Jody has Down Syndrome which means she has learning difficulties and sometimes her speech is hard to understand.

 

Her mum Sally heard about Our House through the local Down Syndrome support group.

 

Jody enjoys coming to Saturday Club where she can socialise with other children at the weekend in a safe, friendly environment where she feels comfortable and not judged by others. This is particularly important to Sally as Jody is an only child so opportunities to play with others can be hard to arrange outside of school.

 

Sally says “Our House is a very safe environment for Jody which means it is not stressful for me.  It is somewhere I can relax and catch up with other parents in the knowledge that Jody is also having a good time.  

 

Our House is a good place to start if I need information for any aspect of special needs care. In fact Our House have started evening sessions with talks by specialists in different areas relevant to caring for a child with special needs which I think will be very useful.

 

Our House is a tremendous resource for Wokingham as it caters for all disabilities and children of all ages. The building is very well equipped and the staff are caring and friendly.”
