"Joseph has been attending Dame Vera Lynn Children's Charity since February 2017. Over these few months we have seen a huge improvement in Joseph's ability to bring his hands together and to use both hands at the same time. He now sits better and enjoys feeding himself and turning the pages of his books, and is getting much better at picking up and handing us objects. With support he can now stand up really well and take a few steps. We have also noticed that lately he makes a bigger variety of noises and expressions! The service has definitely helped our family - seeing our son make progress has been the biggest reward, but it has also been really uplifting to meet people so willing to help us and also to be able to speak to other parents in similar situations."
