The Walking Miracle
It is hard to believe she is diagnosed with rare disease which leads to developmental delay and affected her mobility few years ago.
Watching such a lively little girl Olava keeps running and jumping at the field, it is hard to believe she is diagnosed with rare disease which leads to developmental delay and affected her mobility few years ago.
Olava was referred to Po Leung Kuk Yuen Long Early Learning Centre in 2014. By the age of 3, Olava was still unable to stand and walk, she could neither smile due to oral-motor disorders. With the help of the caring and patient Centre staff, Olava received various trainings. The Centre’s physiotherapist targeted to strengthen her gross motor skills for the first year such as arranging balance practice on a wooden bench for her. After long-term effort, Olava made a progress from easily fall to successfully taking her first step after six months of schooling. Olava’s mother was amazed at the moment. Her worry about Olava would need to use wheelchair for the rest of her life was vanished at once from now on. Eventually, Olava could even dance on the stage, and was selected to deliver the speech on behalf of the graduates.
The growth of Olava brought lots of mixed feelings to her mother. She sent the Centre staff a customized album to express her gratitude for the encouragement and support they encountered over past 4 years, and show her appreciation to the staff by turning Olava into an adorable girl with a happy and fulfilling childhood.
