Hi, my name is Martindougan11! Newsround BBC shout out

Hello everyone :)

My name is Martin and I am a journalist at the BBC.  I work on Newsound, the news programme for kids.  

At the moment I am working on a story:  How young disabled kids have been impacted by the Covid crisis!

Our core audience are 7-13 year olds, give or take.  I'm reaching out to see if anyone within that demographic would be willing to share their experiences with me?  

i'm hoping to speak with some young people on how they feel and how it has impacted, not only them but their families too.  

The end game is to show the stats and number behind the problem, alongside peoples personal stories.  So I can go to a government minister and put questions to them, to encourage change.

I hope this all makes sense and I look forward to hearing back.

Take care
