Standing on her own two feet

Mya is matter-of-fact about her disabilities, the result of brain damage at birth. “I have cerebral palsy and sometimes I have seizures,” she says. Like many little girls her age, Mya loves singing, drama and drawing. She has trouble with motor skills, coordination and balance but her speech is fine and she attends her local primary school, using leg splints or a walker to get around.

Mya has been receiving support from Enliven Maximising Independence services for several years. An Enliven support worker visits her at home four times a week to help with personal care and, if there’s time, play games.
