When you are the parent of a child with complex needs, having the chance to sit down for a five minute break at any point, day or night, is often completely impossible. One mum who knows this struggle all too well is Sheri Ward, from Sunniside near Gateshead, who is both a full-time mum and carer to her children Poppy, five, and six-year-old Jack. Both siblings have autism, however Poppy also has a learning disability, sleep disturbances and bowel complications. As part of Poppy's condition, she can experience often sensory overload, as people with autism are often more sensitive to noise, colours, lights and smells than neurotypical people and process them differently. Sensory overloads can often be extremely distressing for those experiencing them, both mentally and can sometimes even be physically painful. "When Poppy is having a meltdown or experiencing sensory overload, she quite literally climbs the walls as though she were a little spider girl," said 37-year-old Sheri. "She also tends to slam herself against the floor or smash into the wall. "As her mother, it's absolutely awful to watch, and really hard to calm her down when. She's been regularly covered in bruises because of how much force she would use when throwing herself around on the floor," said Sheri. "I became really worried about her, and so I began to research into whether there was anything which could help to calm her down and keep her safe during these meltdowns. "Our family's occupational therapist, who has always been extremely helpful in sharing advice, suggested trying a sensory chair, so it then became my mission to track one down." Sheri turned to a company called Repose Furniture, who stock Protac specialist sensory stimulating chairs, designed to be used for both children and adults with autism or additional needs. The floor seat features a sensory ball filling, which stimulates the touch sense and body awareness. The chair is specially created to promote calmness for whoever is using it, with four flaps which can fold around the user and hug their body closely for feelings of comfort and security. Repose Furniture were able to offer Sheri the chair on loan for four months, as a way to trail it out and see if it could meet Poppy's needs. "The chair completely changed things for us," said Sheri. "Poppy absolutely loved it, and Jack even uses it too to calm himself down. Poppy and her brother Joshua, who both have autism, sharing the sensory chair "During a meltdown Poppy needs to feel physically grounded, which means she needs to keep her feet or hands on the floor to keep her calm. Her autism means that she can't always feel her feet on the floor, or she feels like she's floating, which is why having a chair which hugs around her really benefits her, as she feels grounded and protected. "Whilst it was amazing for Repose Furniture to allow us to use and trial the chair, and we're so thankful to them for that, we knew from the beginning that it was a only a temporary option, but both Poppy and Jack had become really attached and reliant upon it and we couldn't imagine how our lives would be without having access to it anymore. "These chairs however cost nearly two-thousand pounds, so purchasing one for the children ourselves was simply not a option for our family." This was when Sheri and her husband Andrew, 40, decided to reach out to the Sunshine Fund for a helping hand. The Sunshine Fund work tirelessly to purchase specialist equipment not available on the NHS, for local babies, children and teenagers with disabilities. The Covid-19 pandemic forced the Sunshine Fund to cancel the majority of their fundraising events, which was particularly heartbreaking considering this year they received the highest number of applications in almost 100 years of charity status. "I reached out to the Sunshine Fund but believed at the time that it would be a shot in the dark," said Sheri. "I'm one of those people who just gets on with things, and I'm not always keen on asking for help as I feel like I should just crack on alone. "But I'm so glad I made a application to the Sunshine Fund, who were brilliant every step of the way. "It felt like me and my husband suddenly had a support unit around us, which we've never had before." This month the Sunshine Fund were able to provide Poppy with her own Protac chair and additional footstool, which came to £1900 worth of equipment in total. "We've been using the chair for a few weeks now, and both the kids use it regularly everyday," said Sheri. "The footstool is great to provide some addition comfort for Poppy and allows her to lie down fully, but it also supports her if she wants to bend over it to ground her hands and feet to the floor." Sheri said that not only has the equipment been "life changing" for Poppy, but it's also helped her marriage too. "When you are a full-time mum and a full-time carer to your children, there isn't such thing as a break," she said. "I could never sit down with my husband for five minutes and have a conversation. "Poppy doesn't sleep through the night either, so it's not as if we have our evenings free either. "Since the chair arrived, it's the longest I've ever seen Poppy sit still for. Poppy relaxing in her sensory chair donated by the Chronicle Sunshine Fund "It's still hard, and my husband and I still don't get much time together, but the chair has allowed us the opportunity to have a cup of tea together and take a five-minute break, which wasn't possible before because we always had to be aware of where Poppy was and if she was at risk of hurting herself. "Now we can continue to watch her, and know she's safe in her chair, but still get the opportunity to spend some time together. "I'm so grateful to the Sunshine Fund, and I think the work they do in supporting local families like mine is absolutely essential."
