As a mother of seven girls, including some with ASD, and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and one with Down Syndrome, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, a Moderate Hearing Impairment, and possible Ataxic Cerebral Palsy, I have learned a lot about the world of special needs by living in the midst of it!
If you want service that involves someone listening to you, and to your needs as a family, you have come to the right place. Here at Just Juniors Disability, we try and help you find the product that will work best for you and your family. So often families will buy products based solely on a therapists recommendation. If you are lucky enough to have a therapist who has taken the time to get to know about your family dynamics, the activities you do, the area you live, other children in the home etc, then you will probably end up with a product you are happy with. But I am constantly meeting families with equipment worth thousands of dollars that is sitting in a corner collecting dust, because nobody took the time to show them their choices.
I actually left a meeting with a major funding provider feeling very disheartened at the general attitude that seemed to enforce Henry Fords famous words (paraphrased) "you can have any colour wheelchair you like as long as it's black". Imagine if parents to be were handed a list prescribing what type of pram, cot, carseat etc that their new baby would have. One of the exciting parts of expecting a baby is shopping for the nursery. It is our belief that parents of special needs children, and the disabled themselves, should be afforded the same opportunities.
In my search for high quality products for my daughter, I quickly discovered how difficult it was to fulfill her needs, with the limited funding we had available.
My search led me to one of my favourite companies in this field - Mobility Plus. Their integrity and honesty appealed to me as a mother, and when I discovered they did not have a Queensland Rep, I was more than happy to fill the role, combining my experiences of owning a baby shop back in New Zealand, and with my interest in children, and those with special needs. My hope, now that my youngest is in school, is to add my long term dream of studying Occupational Therapy to my list of skills.
I have since also started supplying products from DoAbility. Another company with some great, and reasonably priced goods, that I am really excited to be able to offer.
