We were directly introduced to the area of Disabilities nearly 25 years ago, when our first child, Ailis, was diagnosed with a rare condition called Sturge Weber Syndrome. She has grown up into a fantastic young woman while, all the time fighting, many challenges such as epilepsy, autism, visual impairment and an intellectual disability. We have been with her all the way on her journey and have seen first hand the impact that disabilities have on the individuals themselves but also on their carers and other family members. Over the years, we have developed a personal desire to help other parents and individuals who experience the life changing impact of disability. We did this initially, through the setting up of Thinking Toys in 2004. This supplies toys and equipment that are suitable for children and adults with disabilities. Another thing we really aspired to do, was develop and deliver Thinking Disabilities. Along our family journey, one thing that we consistently experienced was the feeling of “Not Knowing” or “Nobody Told Us” or “If I knew that 6 months ago then …” We wanted to try and create a forum that, in time, will reduce and eliminate those feelings for other parents and individuals. We want Thinking Disabilities to be everyone’s resource. So if you think there is a gap in the information of any kind, across any discipline, then let us know. If you are aware of a relevant event taking place in your area, then let us know.
