James is 7 and he has been attending our Runcorn centre for 3 years.

James spent the first 12 months of his life in hospital having been born at 24 weeks 5 days gestation and was diagnosed with Global Developmental Delay and cerebral palsy. Despite also being severely sight impaired James is a really sociable little boy who loves coming to Stick ‘n’ Step. 

After only being with us for a few months we started toilet training with him – something his Mum didn’t think would happen for a long time. James started walking initially using his sticks and it was a memorable day for the classroom team and his parents when he took his first independent steps.  James himself had a beaming smile when he realised what he had achieved!

We are so grateful to the classroom team at Stick ‘n’ Step, they have definitely changed James’ life for the better and encouraged him to achieve so many things that we never thought would be possible.
