A budding musician and very special little girl, Talitha is five years old and has cerebral palsy and myopathy which are both severe and life limiting.
She lives at home with her mother and requires 24 hour care, 7 days a week with constant suctioning and repositioning in order to maintain a safe and clear airway.
Talitha picked this picture of herself for us to use to introduce you to her. How special is this precious little girl? She LOVES her goldfish!
Talitha has a very exciting year to look forward to next year and we are so excited to be granting her $2643 to purchase some specialised supplies to assist her when she starts school next year!
These items include Band Jam an interactive musical devise, which will utilise Talitha’s love of music to develop her switching technique and skills, as well as encouraging independent and creative self-expression.
Other items include: Height Adjustable table, 1kg angle weights, Dycem non slip mats, Therabrush, Arm & Leg wraps , Modified paint brush, Bent Textas, Modified scissors, Intelliswitch, Classroom suite and a Wedge Pillow.
All these items will ensure Talitha can enjoy and be included in all the activities her first year at school has to offer. We look forward to hearing all about her progress next year.
Pretty as a picture … Talitha loves her music so watch out mum she will be creating all sorts of new sounds with her Band Jam.
