I feel I have to write to tell you about how Jo Jingles has made an impact on my daughter Evie's world! Not just Jo Jingles but Jo herself too!
I'll tell you a bit about Evie if I may, Evie was born 10 weeks early and around 6 months of age she was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Not only that, she had a severe visual impairment which at that point we were told that she might be blind. We found Jo Jingles on the internet but because of her physical and visual problems I was concerned that Evie would stick out like a sore thumb. I rang Jo. She was so friendly and welcoming and really encouraged us to come along and try it.
From the outset Evie loved the sessions and Evie has really astounded us with all her development. Although she still cannot walk, she participates fully in the session. Her vision has also improved greatly. Jo Jingles became a very looked-forward to event and is a special outing each week for her and my Mum. When Mum cannot manage her, Jo will help Evie do the actions.
I truly believe that these sessions have undoubtedly improved her rhythm and musicality but most importantly her confidence and being part of a group. Jo is so caring and concerned when we miss a session for one reason or another and is always attentive to Evie's needs (and Mum's!).
Evie is now 3 and a half years old. She has been going to Jo Jingles now for 3 years and I know how sad she'll be when she starts school this year. However, her little sister Lily is enjoying it too, so Jo won't be rid of us for another couple of years.
