Hello! My name is Rachel, I am almost officially very nearly middle aged, blogging about local Devon life and a wide variety of topics. I have a keen interest in the special needs world since my son Jesse is profoundly Deaf with CHARGE Syndrome. He also has related heart issues. I am passionate about the rights of children (and parents) with special needs and the tough road that we are on. Though I have to say it is also a very rewarding and often humbling road too.
