Bethany Sutton is a little girl who is autistic. Bethany's parents began fundraising so that Bethany may attend a two week Son-Rise programme in America. The programme treats children with autism helping them to make sense of the world around them. Rosie's Helping Hands gave a donation towards the cost of treatment. In August 2004, when Beth was 4 years old, she was able to attend the programme. Bethany's parents report that Beth responded well to the treatment with the highlight being when she said 'Mom' clearly for the first time. Her parents say 'there is no quick fix for Beth, but she is slowly entering into our world.' We are pleased to hear that Bethany continues to make good progress.
Whizz Kidz. This is a Saturday morning pre-school children's club in Aldridge aimed at involving the dad's so giving mum a break. This is a new club but is run in conjunction with other children's groups held at the same premises, Tynings Lane Church. Rosie's Helping Hands bought Whizz Kidz some large pieces of play equipment, such as a play parachute, a parachute ball and a large play box, which can be made into lots of interesting shapes to play in. A wide range of children from other groups such as brownies also use these toys throughout the week.
Friends of Aldridge Cradle Club meet at Aldridge Library every Tuesday afternoon in term time, as the name suggests this is a club for babies from birth to 18 months. The emphasis is on parents and carers to gain confidence in reading stories and singing nursery rhymes to their babies. Rosie's Helping Hands has funded the post of Play Worker until July 2004 to enable the group to establish itself in its first year of being self-funded.
