Andrea, 6 years old. Autonomy in daily life for a person with cerebral palsy
Portale SIVA FondazioneDon Carlo Gnocchi
Andrea is a child aged 6, suffering from cerebral palsy and his mother is his main caregiver. In 2007 he started attending the kindergarten, although not constantly, because of the considerable difficulties of displacement, with his mother carrying him in her arms. At home Andrea used a seating system far too small (prescribed 2 years before), while the kindergarten used the same stroller used outdoors because the school did not have any seating system. Our work was therefore focused on finding solutions aimed at improving the situation, in order to lighten the burden of care of the mother and offering to Andrea a better posture, thus opening a new outlook. The solutions adopted at the end of the evaluation focused on the posture aids, autonomy in food, reduction of the burden of care and prevention of stabilized leg deformities.
