Introducing Scarlett Ruby Hickey, she is five years old and lives in Manchester. Scarlett was born blind and has a condition called Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, diagnoised at 4 and a half months, Scarlett’s eyes are unable to send messages to the brain about what they can see as the optic nerve is under developed. This certainly doesn’t stop Scarlett! With bags of energy, a glorious giggle and a real musical flair, Scarlett can’t help but light up a room. With a warm welcome for anyone she meets, we could all do with a little Scarlett magic in our lives.

Hope you have all had a lovely Easter! We had a lovely visit to Nuzzlets farm today where we did lots of seeing with our eyes :) Scarlett was very tired throughout the day as her sleeping patterns are all over the place but despite that she touched a duck, chicken, newly hatched chics, rabbits, Turkey, hedgehog, lamb and guinea pigs. We visited this farm over a year ago and there has been massive improvements in her willingness to explore with her hands. She really enjoyed feeling things and included some animal noises! She pushed a pram independently and tried to fall asleep on the sheep :) I will be writing a blog about this trip soon and how we are looking at concept development but here are a few photos from a truly magical day! ...

Gwyneth McCormackI love your photos of Scarlett, particularly smiled at the one of her pushing the rabbit in a pushchair, what a lovely activity. This day must have been full of so many rich learning experiences for Scarlett, and I can see many a experience book complete with audio being made, I look forward to seeing the blog about your trip. Maybe one to display at our Love Literacy Conference later this year too.1   ·  1 month ago
