Q.

School around Gauteng for Cerebral Palsy child

I'm have a 6 years old daughter who has cerebral Palsy/physically challenged and looking for a school that can accomodate her. Currently she attends a good normal creche, but her behaviour is a challenge to them.

If there's a parent out there or anyone that knows of a school -
around Gauteng that caters for CP kids, could you please let me know.

Hi

There is also a lovely school in Parktown called Little Feats. Beautiful setup for disabled and semi mobile children. The owner of the school is also fantastic. I only have her cell number though, if you are interested, please mail me on shantalh at gmail.com and I will give you the details.

There are also some in the Johannesburg CBD area, The Talk Shop and The Language Unit. I don't have their numbers though.

My daughter is 3, and has recently been diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. It's great finally having a diagnosis, so that we can move forward from the battery of tests, but it is incredibly difficult to deal with. Do any other Mom's here have children with the same syndrome? I have no idea what to plan for long term.

Does anyone know of a special school in the Morningside/Rivonia/Gallo Manor area? Would be for a speech and physically impared child.

Thanks!!

I think that a support group would be great.i have a 3 yr old with cerebral diplegia and it has not been easy. I'm currently in Nelspruit and there is only 2 schools for disabled kids.one public which has a long waiting list and no kids with Nappies allowed. The other one is a private school- expensive but very good. Im relocating to johannesburg and it has many schools for cp kids like forest town school,Francis Vorweg. I'm still to visit some but I was impressed by forest town school. Its a tough emotionally physically draining to handle a child with special needs but with God s power within me and child, we have managed to accept and do all we can to help our child. It's also been financially draining cos you tend to buy all that the physio, ot suggest will help the child and some don't. I believe All will work out . We just need to believe that.

In JHB South there is a school called Lusito Land (I think). My brother's daughter is 11 years old and CP. She used to attend this school but no longer does as my SIL stopped work to look after her a few years ago. Its a pity she does not have computer access cause I think it would be a great idea to start a support group just to talk about you LO's and deal experiences and give advise and help each other.

Where in Gauteng are you ?

There is The Gateway in Ruimsig in Roodepoort area
and
Con Amore in Kemptonpark
Casa Carita's on the East Rand

please email me on gysmo at 24.com and I'll give you numbers depending of your area.

You need to do this asap she needs to be in a school that understands her needs and can help her with therapy - a "normal" cresche cannot do this.

Love Mom
