Hannah’s family

“From the moment Hannah met Izzy, she was hooked. Hannah seemed to respond to her immediately. Hannah doesn’t always co-operate, but Izzy is so patient.”

She always comes with a smile on her face and a bag of surprise games and activities for Hannah. It is wonderful to see this relationship. I think Hannah would like her to come every day. Hannah has been able to learn some signs. Hannah’s progress in never going to be in leaps and bounds, but we have seen her improve so much.  She also looks very proud of herself when she can follow what Izzy has asked her to do.
