Charlie and I have been going to Jo Jingles in Heswall Hall for over a year now and Charlie loves it! Diane, who runs the class, is wonderful and makes each week we go such fun.
Charlie has Down’s Syndrome, and therefore special needs, and going to Jo Jingles has really helped him. It has helped in areas such as co-ordination through playing instruments. It has helped in teaching Charlie to wait, as in waiting for the next instrument to appear – which he gets excited about. And he also watches Diane and copies her actions which is great for his development too.
Routine is very important to Charlie and, whilst the songs at the start and the end of the sessions are the same every week, which is important as Charlie needs familiarity, he also very much enjoys learning new songs in the main session. He will then sing them, after the session, very loudly around Tesco !!
We cannot recommend Jo Jingles enough and it is great for children of any ability. It’s brilliant and a lot of fun for the children and their parents.
