Imagine a child unable to communicate because of a learning condition or just too overwhelmed with stimulation to interact with others.
Imagine the isolation of growing up unable to communicate your frustration or loneliness.
Imagine feeling helpless or even embarrassed as a parent, unable to explain your child's complex behaviour or worse, unable to help them on your own.
There are kids in our community that rely on specialized learning aids to help them achieve the foundational skills many of us take for granted.
And there’s a shortage.
Many of us purge unwanted (and unused) toys every season without giving it a second thought. Meanwhile others right here in our region need specialized learning aids and toys to help them develop skills they rely on for life fulfilment - like walking or expressing themselves.
Enter: The Teach & Play Program.
Why this program matters
- 95% of parents reported increased communication skills for their children as a result of the Teach & Play program and the specialized toys and support provided
- 100% of parents surveyed reported increased knowledge of child development
- 100% of families reported less stress as a result of their involvement with the program
- 93% reported a significant increase in their confidence parenting their child
Here's how you can immediately impact a child's life today
The United Way has set up a special program to fund this need.
With a gift of any size, you help ensure a collection of the coolest and most impactful learning toys possible for London kids. Check out the "Wobble Deck", a topsy turvy balance platform which, through fun challenges, helps a child develop balance and coordination. With these skills, their day to day lives get easier, including walking, playing active games and navigating stairs.
With your help, we can ensure more children develop and physical and intellectual skills they need to be happier, more productive, and more engaged members of their own families and our community.
If we raise $10,000 by the end of March 2017, sagecomm will match every dollar donated, giving your donation the potential and potency it needs to help change a young life forever.
So every dollar counts.
If you have any questions about this burst campaign to help kids in our community with intellectual disabilities please don't hesitate to contact us anytime.
Thank you for your time and attention and please share!
