Thanks to mum, Chitra, for this timely reminder about Button Batteries. Chitra's young son, Avy, had a near-miss after removing his hearing aid and putting it in his mouth (and they couldn't find the battery - a scan showed it had not been swallowed) so she speaks with some knowledge. "You must have read in the news today about button battery ingestion. Button batteries pose 'deadly' risk to toddlers: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-37410343 I am a PhD researcher in Computer Science and 'Patient Safety' is my area of research. My PhD research project, CHI+MED (Computer-Human Interaction for Medical Devices) was funded by Research Council UK - EPSRC. In one of my publications - 'Hearing aid battery ingestion: Medical error or poor design?' - Avy is the child in the case study (near-miss battery ingestion incident). Acharya, C., Manchaiah, V. K. C., Lewis, A., & Thimbleby, H. (2014). Hearing aid battery ingestion: Medical error or poor design? BAA Magazine, Summer 2014, 27–28. British Academy of Audiology. http://www.chi-med.ac.uk/publicdocs/WP168.pdf ." Please find below a couple of articles about battery ingestion. 1) Hearing aid battery compartments need locks http://www.chi-med.ac.uk/hazards/hearingaids.php 2) Button batteries can kill if swallowed https://chimedblog.wordpress.com/2016/01/04/button-batteries-can-kill-if-swallowed/

We're excited! The #LittleFootprintsBall for School for Parents at #NFFC is only a few weeks away and thanks to Lisa Fox, Dave Taylor and a fab team of very supportive people it's all set to be a brilliant event (the pics below are items that can be won on a table raffle). In the lead-up to the night, they have been running an online auction that has already raised £3,500 with lots more items coming up. Please, would you take a sec to like the page and share with friends - if you love sports memorabilia there's plenty to come! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1741238496146992/

Support Case Study

‘I was delighted to be asked to support School for Parents. What inspires me is that every day each of the children overcomes huge obstacles, learning to do things most of us take for granted – they don’t realise it though; to them it’s all fun!
