Hemiplegia

Tahlia is a little angel who came into our lives eleven years ago. She has a right sided hemiplegia.  From the moment she was born it was clear she was a fighter! Despite a gloomy prognosis from doctors, Tahlia has made tremendous progress. 

Tahlia literally grew after starting TST at nine years old.

The turning point came when I bumped into someone who told me about Linda Scotson and the Scotson Technique. Tahlia literally grew after she started Scotson at nine years of age.  She gained weight, her hair grew, her body straightened, she learnt to make friends, and most importantly she to learned to manage her frustrations.   

Physical and emotional gains 

TST has had a wonderful impact on Tahlia both physically and emotionally.  It has become part of her life now and she herself is aware how much her life has changed since she started. Although she likes days off from therapy, she enjoys her therapy time.

A brighter future

Thanks to us finding TST she is now flourishing in Grade 4 in a Montessori school, which she absolutely loves.
