Girl with Cerebral Palsy feeding sheep

Meet Bella-Skye

Bella-Skye’s increased tone makes it difficult for her to use her hands with accuracy and, without intervention, significantly limits how she can access and explore her environment. Bella-Skye is a highly motivated pupil and will always try her best, even when she finds tasks really hard.

Meet Maisie

Maisie was born by emergency C-section. The blood flow between Maisie and her mother’s placenta had reversed and she was born with very little blood in her body. She needed to be resuscitated and had a number of seizures.

Meet Joey

Joey is 7 years old has a diagnosis of Periventricular Cerebral Palsy which affects all areas and in particular his lower limbs, trunk and left arm and hand, but his difficulties extend beyond these physical challenges. Joey started Pace in September 2017 and during his first visit it was clear that he was a very self-conscious little boy who found his body very difficult to use resulting in him being withdrawn, lacking self-confidence and self esteem. Therefore, building Joey’s social and emotional mental health was as important as developing his physical skills.
