An online story time and sing-a-long session has been organised for families with visually-impaired children.
Pre-schoolers are being invited to take part in a weekly Zoom-based session run by sight loss charity Vision Norfolk.
The virtual event aims to provide respite for parents who may be home-schooling older siblings and looking after their visually-impaired children.
The free 45-minute sessions will provide stories and musical entertainment for babies and pre-schoolers, and are open to all visually-impaired pre-school children and their siblings.
Barbara Dunn, young people and families activities co-ordinator at the charity, said: “All parents are under pressure at the moment, but for parents with visually-impaired children, there is an extra dimension
“These new sessions are designed to entertain very young visually-impaired children, and bring them and their families together in an online community. We’re aiming to make them a lot of fun, as well as providing support to mums and dads at this difficult time.”
The Children’s Story Time and Sing-a-long sessions take place every Tuesday at 11am. More details via firstname.lastname@example.org.
