Offering pathways to success
Hi my name is Joshua. I am 14 years old and I have global developmental delays. I love my school, playing drums and ten pin bowling. When I grow up I want to work outdoors like my brothers. My big family wants me to be the best I can be, so we are raising funds for my medical expenses, therapy, stimulation activities and educational aids.
You are invited to sponsor Joshua's Team by donating on this page. Please join our Facebook page - link from Joshua's Team logo above.
Joshua suffered an acquired brain injury soon after birth. He underwent a home therapy program with Ian Hunter for 3 years which resulted in Joshua being able to reach his age appropriate milestones in movement, vision and hearing. Joshua's challenges continue to be his speech and cognitive abilities. He is doing extremely well at his Special Education school. His teachers commented that he has come out of his shell this year and they are very pleased with his progress. Our expectations of Joshua are increasing each year as continue to offer him pathways to succeed.
Joshua has the ability to do almost any activity that is put to him. He does need more intense time with each activity. We would like to provide additional lessons in speech and music therapy and movement activities with a paediatric physiotherapist. These activities will improve Joshua's confidence and self esteem.
