Emma – Born August 2009, in Lausanne, Switzerland
Emma was born with Cerebral Palsy.
When we first met Emma she was three, and hardly used her arms and legs. A few months later, she was able – for the first time – to crawl forward on her tummy and to roll over from her back to her tummy, and from the tummy to her back. Today, she is using her arms and legs much more, she feeds herself, and holds a toy or a pencil.
“First Step was able to give us the support, tools and knowledge that we needed to get Emma over a huge hump in her development. Just about a year ago, Emma had little head control and stability in her trunk and we had to do everything for her. She is now rolling over, can commander-crawl, and is using her hands with much more precision. She is learning her independence which is changing her and our lives”
