Fraser Syndrome: 'When Santa writes to me in Braille, I feel included'

This video can not be played
Christmas is Aadam's favourite time of year, but with a visual impairment through Fraser Syndrome, he can sometimes be left out of celebrations if they aren't accessible.
Now the Royal National Institute of Blind People is producing Santa letters in Braille.
It means 10-year-old Aadam can enjoy one of his favourite parts of Christmas – writing to Santa and getting a letter back in Braille.
Watch Aadam and his mother explain what it means to him, and how they want Christmas to be more accessible for blind children and adults.
