Will, who has Downs Syndrome and visual impairment, has been attending Kidscene since the summer of 2016.
Kidscene is an after school club and holiday service for children with and without disabilities between the ages of 5 and 16.
Children with visual impairments and children without visual impairments, who come from a number of Edinburgh schools, attend the service. Kidscene offers a swimming pool, a sensory garden and multi-use games area.
When Will first attended Kidscene, he would find some of the noisy environments very stressful. Will would seek out a quieter area of Kidscene to play with a staff member on his own.
Over time though, we have been delighted to see Will making great progress in mixing with other children. He has built some wonderful friendships with several children who attend Kidscene.
Now, Will now enjoys spending time with his friends in the garden and in the playrooms.
Will especially loves being tickled and will laugh out loud with the most wondrously infectious laugh.
