What Families & Children Say...

I love going in my sensory room and sometimes I am so relaxed that I fall asleep! My VI teacher has said that my eye sight has improved slightly, so thank you all so much for helping my eye sight improve.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Newlife for Paul's new Mygo system. For the first time ever he has been able to sit and have dinner with us at the table due to the height adjustable base. He loves the new seat and it will make a huge difference to his life.

Lewis clearly finds the safespace calming and settled much more quickly at night, he has only had one sleepless night, but it was a noise free one as the safespace prevented him striking the walls and softened his vocalisations. We are deeply humbled by the generosity of Newlife.
