We believe that children with disabilities need support to eliminate barriers so they can fully engage with their peers. Every child with a disability has things they are great at but sometimes they are not always obvious to start.
Children with disabilities need friends, parents and grown-ups who encourage them by telling them what they’re good at and how proud they are. Although children with disabilities may take a little longer to learn they soon realize they are equally capable to others.
Encouraging them to get involved with things they like makes them feel special and loved. Together we will make a huge difference in children with disabilities’ lives because…
