Sian provided intensive physiotherapy to begin with and then dropped to weekly sessions, which we continue to this day.
M has severe physical disabilities, a learning disability and autism and knowing how to motivate him to co-operate with his exercises while dealing with the combination of these challenges is a skill very few people possess. Sian has this at her fingertips.
We were informed that M would lose the ability to transfer when he was approximately 13 (2012) however we can only thank Sian and her team for their skills, dedication and ability to motivate him to both do, and more importantly, enjoy his exercises for the fact that currently (2019) he is still able to transfer from beds, toilets, shower and wheelchairs. Not having to be hoisted for personal functions allows him to continue living as independent a life as possible without major restrictions.
