Six-year-old Ahmed has Down syndrome. At 14 months he tries mainstream swimming lessons to develop his physical strength, but with little success.
But when Ahmed joins Rainbow Club in 2017 the family delights in his progress and the difference in his fine and gross motor skills.
There’s also a big improvement in Ahmed’s communication skills as he learns to receive and respond to instructions from teachers.
Mum Sadia says,
“Liverpool Rainbow Club provides a friendly and caring environment. Seeing Ahmed enjoy himself and his social skills blossom is amazing. Ahmed’s teacher told me recently that physically he’s not far behind other kids his age. That’s wonderful feedback.”
