Bounce

Still working with S&C Coach Gareth Shelbourne. This represents a milestone in both Kt’s recovery from ongoing knee injuries and adapting to changes brought by simply growing.

Growth spurts present major hurdles for any CP child. It’s helpful to have a quality, resourceful coach to assist – cheers Gareth.

Perhaps yesterday’s hour at the local trampoline park helped a bit too. 🤔

Posture

A lovely playing posture. She is growing up and that’s not without its issues on many fronts. With regard to her CP, Kt is in the fight like so many others, some highs and some lows, progression and some regression. 

It’s like learning a new language some aspects stick in there, some fade over time with less use. It’s important that she and we recognise this as part of our regular life; with all its new challenges and more importantly opportunities to shine.  

 Sprint training!

Yes you can Kt! Gareth Shelbourne has been working with her for over a year now. Strength, agility and balance. These past few weeks we have switched focus to running technique. 

Full limb coordination and explosiveness, two exceptionally elusive things for most CP diplegians, are shown here. She was very chuffed with her fledgling abilities. Go Kt go!
