The Livesey family from the UK
Our family consists of the gorgeous Henrietta who’s two and a half, mum Lauren, dad David and Henri’s fur-sister Agatha.
Henri is doing really well with her physical development and communicates through the use of Makaton.
We spend a lot of time working on exercises and activities given to us by Henri’s physio, speech therapist and portage worker.
We are supported along the way by family, friends, Henri’s fabulous nursery and a host of other charitable organisations who have had such an impact on her development:
- the South Manchester Down’s Syndrome Support Group,
- the Positive About Down’s Syndrome charity and
- the Rainbow Hub.
We’re really grateful for the support we receive as it has had such an impact on Henri’s development.
The best way to promote awareness of Down syndrome is for people with Down syndrome to share their own stories in their own words.
