Heidi is a pupil at Elleray Park School in Liverpool, a MOVE Quality Mark accredited school. Here, her mum Stephanie highlights the difference that the MOVE Programme has had on Heidi’s quality of life in just a short period of time.

 

As told by her mum, Stephanie:

‘Heidi started using the MOVE Programme when she began attending Elleray Park school in September 2016. Heidi did not have very good head control, and was unable to sit unaided due to her limited strength. Heidi was using a fully moulded pram with harnesses to support her in a sitting position.’

 

‘Since being on the MOVE Programme, Heidi is getting stronger everyday. She no longer requires the harness in her buggy, and her head control has improved significantly. Heidi can now sit in a controlled manner on the floor, with a little support.’

 

‘The MOVE Programme has enabled Heidi to be more interactive with the family, as she is much more alert and aware of her surroundings now. It has been amazing to see such a difference in Heidi, and we are looking forward to seeing her continue to go from strength to strength, with the help of the MOVE Programme.’
