Meet Hannah

Wee Hannah has progressive neurological disease, and she's deaf, so the pretty three-year-old is expected never to walk independently, and at present has limited ability to understand. However, her parents and paediatrician felt she would benefit from having a car, both from appreciating the fun of her colourful mobile toy, and from the incentive to improve hand and head control and the ability to sit unsupported. We were happy to help. At first she found the car's movement disconcerting, but with patient mum using the buddy switch she soon loved it, and later feedback from home is promising.
