We’ve had the following request from an OT near Scarborough. Is anyone able to help?
I am a family coordinator for a social care team in East Riding. I work with families who have children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities. I was hoping you would be able to help a young boy I am working with.
The child is 6 years old. He has been diagnosed with a condition that affects the shape of the skull. It affects this boys face where one side of his face is further out and the other is more sunk in.
This boy loves swimming but he had to stop as the next part of his lessons involved going under water. He is unable to wear standard children’s swimming goggles as water gets in the lenses due to the shape of his face.
This boy would love to be able swim as he gets a lot of enjoyment out of swimming as well as gives him regular exercise and interacting with his peers.
If someone would be able to help get this boy back swimming we would all be very grateful.
If you’re able to help, please contact central office and we’ll put you in touch with the OT. Thanks all!
