SEBASTIAN‘S STORY By his Mother
A friend pointed out the interview Linda did on a BBC radio show and it pointed me in the direction of the “advance Centre” and “Linda Scotson” so I decided to pay them a visit.
Cerebral Palsy rehabilitation
Linda was (and still is) exactly what we needed: A fountain of well backed up information and explanations to assist us with our son Sebastian who is 5 years old. He has cerebral palsy due to insufficient oxygen during his last 20 minutes before he was born. So to have found such an inspirational and exciting person to assist us in rehabilitating and supporting our son was absolutely brilliant and magical. From the start I had no doubt in my mind that we were to follow this technique and lifestyle through.
A cheeky five year old
The first thing about Sebastian which changed dramatically was his squint and his eye-sight. He had a right converted squint and not particularly good eye-sight. His eyes are better and he can now enjoy more detail in life. His behaviour became great; helping to dress himself; crawling around, begin to stand and expressing himself with sign language, gradually just catching up. He is now a cheeky 5 year old with a strong will and abundance of character. He is very obedient now too, though this sometimes clashes with having such a strong will.
Upper body strenght and balance
This summer, he has starting using the swing for bigger children at the playgrounds which requires good posture, great upper body strength and balance to enjoy. We have been coming to Advance for only two years and we totally embrace our time and access to “Advance” for the future to come.
