At nursery Mera had few incidents where the children jumped on her cane, there were a lot of questions around Mera and her cane and her 1:1 assistant.
The school decided at the assembly to give the children the opportunity to know Mera’s world better.
Mera had a visit from Lorna and her guide dog it was a lovely visit, all the children were interested ready to listen and asked lots of questions. Some were brave and tried the cane blind folded.
Mera was so happy to meet Mac the guide dog we weren’t sure how she’s going to react.
Happiness giggles on her face every time we talk about Mac and she goes “the dog licked my nose” with a wide smile on her face.
It was a very nice experience for Mera and for the children to know how Mera’s eyes work and find out what the cane is for and the most important thing that Mera is not different, she is like everybody else but sees in a different way.
