We met Glory, who has cerebral palsy, through one of our partner organisations when she was three years old. She was able to crawl and pull herself to standing, but there were no systems in place to monitor her progress and target future treatment to ensure she reached her potential.
CAPDA saw an opportunity to improve the monitoring of clinical progress in patients with cerebral palsy. Working with our partner organisation, we implemented a benchmarking system which allows them to offer effective interventions and equipment at the right time, for Glory and for the other children in their care.
Glory’s progress was astonishing. With the help of a walker and a home skills program, she learnt to walk inside her home with assistance. Within a year she had mastered walking outside without a walker. Glory now attends a mainstream kindergarten.
