A Bradley Stoke couple have celebrated the completion of a sensory garden at their home, specially designed for their disabled son to enjoy, thanks to the support of friends and charitable organisations who raised over £3,000 to bring the project to fruition.

Four-year-old Cameron Alderman, who was born deafblind, lives with his mum Carla Golledge, her partner Adam Alderman and his two sisters, Morgan, 8, and Indie, 10 months.

The family moved to Bradley Stoke just under a year ago from Kingswood and live in a bungalow that has been specially adapted to meet Cameron’s needs.

Cameron’s condition has affected every aspect of his development including mobility, speech, behaviour and understanding. He is a part-time wheelchair user, non-verbal and has recently had surgery to place a permanent feeding tube. Although he currently has some hearing capability in one ear, this is expected to diminish as he gets older.

Mum Carla told the Journal:

“Raising a deafblind child brings many challenges to everyday life, such as accessing the environment safely. Although we face many challenges, Cameron is a happy little boy who brings such joy to our lives.”
