Puppets add a further dimension in helping children with both hearing and local disabilities.
Puppets are able to come to life as characters. They are able to portray different personalities and various traits as well as different cultures. Puppets are also able to share different emotions such as joy and sadness; they can be naughty and good, cheeky or shy.
