A child with Down Syndrome
20th October 2012
My son Adrian is two and a half and has Down syndrome. Adrian first started attending Helen’s sessions at the Clann family resource centre in Oughterard.
Adrian now attends Helen’s for one hour once a week and his face lights up as soon as he arrives at Helen’s, he really loves the sessions. Adrian has progressed enormously from Helen’s input. His hand eye coordination and fine motor movement has greatly improved.
Adrian was medically very unwell for the first year of his life and his gross motor movement and speech and language development were further delayed as a result of him being so unwell, since working with Helen he is almost walking freely and his levels of communication through sound production are much improved.
I cannot recommend the service Helen provides highly enough
It is a wonderful child friendly environment where learning happens the way it should in a fun and positive way.
