I saw an advert a few months back asking Firefly followers to review the Eazyhold products, and I remember getting very excited by the idea of Zachariah having these amazing things that I had to order right away.

However I was confronted with the dilemma that they are only available in the America so it was an £18 delivery charge.

This was quickly resolved with having friends who were visiting America who kindly offered to bring them back for us, winner!

I originally wanted them to assist Zachariah with using drumsticks to try and develop on from his usual banging and kicking to drumming using sticks, but I was pleasantly surprised with the opportunities they create, from holding a toothbrush to using a paintbrush.

With disabilities and a visual impairment it is very difficult for Zachariah to grab and hold onto things, and although he has done amazingly well learning to hold onto particular toys, there is still a need for assistance with others, more so with the smaller objects.

Before the Eazyholds we would do hand over hand technique when it came to painting, colouring and writing, and this would leave a feeling that it was never quite Zachariah’s own design, whereas now he can completely get ownership of his masterpieces.

The Eazyholds have opened up a whole new world of opportunities and it is beyond exciting for everyone involved, Zachariah is now signing birthday cards and painting his own pictures.

The biggest change for him has been at nursery, where he can now get even more involved in the activities with all his friends.

Inclusion is just so important to me, and with these Eazyholds it is made more accessible.

Zachariah gets such a huge sensory feedback from using the Eazyholds as it allows him to hold items of different sizes and textures and allows him to feel what it is like to use a felt tip and brush paint against the paper.

His face lights up when he uses them and this makes me incredibly happy.

So now I can give a legitimate review of the Eazyhold grips after using them with Zachariah for a few months, and I can honestly say they are incredible.

Simple, yet so effective and they bring so many opportunities.

Highly recommend them and look forward to seeing what other adventures are ahead of Zachariah, and look forward to pinning up many more Zachariah masterpieces onto my fridge.

It is such a proud moment seeing his creativity all hanging together in the kitchen.

It’s the big things, the small things and all those wonderful things in between.
