Isabella is two years old and has been diagnosed with Quadriplegic Dystonic Cerebral Palsy, arising from complications at birth. This has severely affected the development of her motor skills and speech. She needs early intervention with the right therapy and education to help her get the most out of life. Fortunately, there is an excellent centre in Sheffield that specialises in conductive education, an approach which has had excellent results with children with needs like Bella. She has a place to start there in September. See more here: http://www.paces-school.org.uk/index.html

Unfortunately the long process of LEA formal assessment and completion of the statement of needs, which would allow her parents, Estelle and Jonathan, to secure funding for her to attend Paces, will not be completed in time. However, if she does not start at the centre in September, then she would lose her place for at least a year. It has been shown that the earlier a child can get the type of education and therapies that are offered at Paces the more likely they are to achieve results. The fees for the first term at Paces are £5000.

We are a group of friends of Isabella, Estelle and Jonathan who are partaking in a number of events and activities to raise money to help cover this first terms fees. If anyone else wants to do something, please let me know and I'll add you to the list.

Thank you for you generosity in sponsoring:
