Hello, thank you for visiting our website. This section is for parents and carers with the aim to make it as helpful and informative as we can with everything from top tips to news and views on the latest developments in government and how they may affect you, plus we’ve listed some useful websites for parents of children with special needs. We’ll be adding information to this section all the time, and also our Jiraffe Community and Blog pages.

In the meantime, we’ve found some interesting blogs you might want to take a look at:

And we found this particularly lovely blog on the Scope website: It’s by Emma Birch who’s young daughter has Cerebral Palsy and was struggling to find books to help her explain to her daughter in a positive and simple way what her condition was and what it meant to her on a daily basis.

haylee-blogEmma went on to write a book in collaboration with her daughter’s therapist, Michelle Rundel, which can be purchased from Amazon as an e-book. The book aims to explain to children some of the treatments and equipment they may come across, and all the illustrations are based around Jiraffe products: The Rifton Pacer and Jenx Junior! Take a look at the book on Amazon here.

We’re always keen to hear from parents, carers and children who want to share their ideas, tips, advice or stories with us! If you, or someone you know, has benefitted in a positive way from using equipment from the Jiraffe range, or has any practical and useful advice from your own experiences, why not get in touch and share it with us. Send an email to yourstory@jiraffe.org.uk.
