WE did not realise how fortunate we were in Taunton to have an Opportunity Group such as TOG (Taunton Opportunity Group), which is a specialist resource for parents in need of a pre-school for children with disabilities, until our grandson was born.

However, we are delighted to say for the past three years our grandson, who has Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy and is nonverbal, was able to attend this wonderful pre-school establishment.

During these precious years our grandson has been developing, interacting and learning in an environment where he was happy and pleased to attend without fail.

Having reached primary school age its time now for our grandson to leave TOG.

We feel so privileged, appreciative and so full of admiration for the specialist care, support and development that has taken place to give this special boy of ours an opportunity of further development within a different setting.

The dedication to detail, special personal and professional skills together with the warmth communicated to all the children with disabilities make these people very special.

As a family we feel so very fortunate and have so much gratitude to all at TOG for your care and encouragement for our grandson to access all that you were able to provide.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
