Ladan generally responds to voices and frequently looks at people or tv/computer images. There are several indicators that Ladan is not only aware of the people around her but also understands them too, at least some of the time.
I have always felt that Ladan appreciates hearing and seeing her friends and having a variety of people talk to her but, since many of you are far away from Newcastle, there has not been much variety of late. Therefore I think it would be great for Ladan if you could send something of yourself to her which I can share at a time when I think she will be most able to appreciate it.
