Sweet Success!

The little boy who you will see in the 'Youtube' link suffered a massive stroke at 6 weeks of age, which took out almost the entire left hemisphere of his brain.  His doctors said he would never use his right arm, hand or leg.  Consequently, he would never crawl, or walk.  As speech is located in the left hemisphere, it would also have been unlikely that he would understand or produce language.  The long term consequences of this are that he would be dependent upon his family for much of his care and he would never have been mobile.

About 9 months ago, his mum found Snowdrop and she enrolled him on our 'distance programme' (They do not come from the UK).  We instituted a programme designed to stimulate brain plasticity and designed to direct that plasticity down developmental pathways.  As you will see in the video, 9 months later, he is walking!  His language development is also right on track.
