A sprightly, determined four year-old, Georgiana has a rare metabolic genetic disease called GA1. Following a strict diet, any illness has to be very closely monitored.
Physical disabilities are due to low muscle tone, affecting her balance and co-ordination meaning over 30 falls every day and an ability to walk short distances only.
Rainbow Hub has helped Georgiana to improve her balance and muscle strength, which has had a positive effect on performing activities, gaining independence and confidence.
11 year-old Phoebe has the rare condition of Moebius Syndrome causing paralysis of the face. This means she has no facial expressions and is unable to eat other than via a specialist tube. Phoebe also has curvature of the spine and has had a number of operations to stabilise her condition.
From two-years old Phoebe has attended Rainbow Hub, when she had very low muscle tone and was only just able to sit, we’ve worked hard to teach her to stand, walk and bounce on a trampoline, as well as learning to run.. With Rainbow Hub, Phoebe is now a strong, independent and happy girl.
Living with cystic fibrosis and other health issues, Abu’s cheeky, lovable character hides the very serious nature of his condition. Before attending Rainbow Hub, he was unable to walk, talk or even play independently.
Rainbow Hub has helped the four year-old to achieve goals beyond his limits; he can now walk independently and is learning to sign more and more new words.
