Since 2019, Kenny has lived at The Children’s Trust and attends The Children’s Trust School. The curriculum at the school involves a range of activities, including; Music and Movement, Multi-Sensory Stories, Parachute Games and Light and Sound.
Kenny takes pleasure in Boccia, a ball sport similar to bowls, and aquatic therapy. He has a weekly yoga class and regular access to his various sitting, lying and standing programmes. Kenny also enjoys accessing switches to create an effect, such as turning on lights, activating a blender or hairdryer and propelling his wheelchair forward.
Kenny’s mum, Jenny, comments: “Before we arrived at The Children’s Trust, Kenny was very shy and became uneasy when he would meet new people. Now, he is more confident and will show his excitement with a big smile.”
“The past year has been a huge change for Kenny. We previously lived in the US but due to my job had to move to the UK. I thought a new environment would be really tough for Kenny but he has settled in better than I could have ever imagined. He has made brilliant friends and I’m so happy he can take part in the fun activities at The Children’s Trust.”
