Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia
Today we saw a little boy who had neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia at birth which caused him to suffer brain haemorrhages. We first saw him 2 years ago and since he started the programme the progress in language development, hand function, social development and in his level of understanding has been phenomenal. He is also well on the way to developing a standing balance, which will be a step away from walking. He got a bit upset with me today, which upset me because I want children to come and have a good time. Such an intelligent little boy though, he will go far! Just shws what is possible with effort and patience.
