Vision Australia’s national Feelix Library helps children who are blind or have low vision to enjoy the same childhood story books as their sighted peers. The kits contain a story book annotated with braille, an audio version and a tactile book, as well as some toys.

“Feelix assists our youngest clients develop their listening and reading skills. It enables them to learn about the story through the tactile elements and it also helps them become familiar with braille and learn how to track braille words across a page,” said Louise Curtin, Project Officer, Vision Australia.

“The service has been incredibly successful, we started off with just 20 members and we now send kits to almost 600 people nation-wide, including children, teachers and kindergartens or nurseries and we have over 1530 titles,” she added.

Although he is only nearing his fourth birthday, young Aston Agostinho, has already developed a great love of books and creative story-telling.  You can read more about Aston’s story on the Vision Australia website.

PARENT INFORMATION

Perinatal Anxiety and Depression.

Perinatal Anxiety and Depression, also commonly known as Postnatal Depression, can affect many parents after the birth of their child.

Many women are confused by their feelings when they become parents. Your mood may change rapidly from joy to amazement to being overwhelmed and 'sad' by the responsibility of having a child to look after. Many new mums experience mood swings and these are attributed to the rapid drop in hormonal levels in the body after the birth and the physical exhaustion of the early days of parenting.

The emotional low points are generally known as the 'baby blues' and should not be confused with perinatal anxiety and depression.
What is Perinatal Anxiety and Depression?

Perinatal Anxiety and Depression, or Postnatal Depression, describes the more severe or prolonged symptoms of depression that last more than a week or two and interfere with the ability to function on a daily basis, including caring for baby.
Symptoms

Major symptoms can vary, but may include:

* Loss of enjoyment in usual pursuits
* Loss of self esteem and confidence
* Loss of appetite and weight
* Broken sleep (irrespective of baby)
* Sense of hopelessness and being a failure
* Suicidal thoughts or ideas
* Panic attacks
* Loss of libido
* Fears for baby's or partner's safety or well-being

Treatments for Perinatal Anxiety and Depression

Depending on the severity of the symptoms, a past history of depression or other causes that need to be discussed with your local doctor. Treatment options vary from medication to group therapy.

It's important to treat depression as early as possible because partners and young children can also feel stressed when a parent is anxious or depressed.

Both mothers and fathers can suffer from perinatal anxiety and depression.

Tresillian offers perinatal anxiety and depression groups for mothers. If you think a group program may be of value in managing your depression, please discuss this with your child and family health nurse or local doctor.

Contact the Tresillian Parents Help Line for more information on (02) 9787 0855 or 1800 637 357 (outside Sydney).
