AFK – Working with disabilities
AFK - Lacey's Story
Lacey is 10 and has a diagnosis of autism, plus epilepsy, ADHD, depression and lower limb hypermobility and weakness. Here family contacted us because Lacey was getting sad and embarrassed at school and with her friends because she couldn’t keep up in PE, in the playground or on outdoor activities. Lacey’s physiotherapist recommended a special Theraplay trike as it would allow her to strengthen her core and legs plus join in with others. AFK funded the trike and when it arrived Lacey pedalled up and down the street – she was so proud and excited and her goal is to get her cycling badge at scouts. Mum told us Lacey’s world has opened up and her self-esteem has improved immensely.
