Jason is a 13 year old multi-handicapped boy who is suffering from cerebral palsy, development delay and total blindness. Since he came to the Home in the year 2009, he has not been able to respond to his teachers’ instructions nor move around without supervision.
Jason is unable to move around freely due to the condition with his legs. Thus, he is always brought around on his wheel chair. However, he requires very little help in class as he chooses to crawl around to anywhere he wants without requesting for any help from his teachers. He is able to utter simple words with an almost perfect pronunciation. When it comes to meal time, he is able to feed on the entire meal using spoon and fork. He loves eating fruits and is able to peel off the banana and orange skin before he eats it. He is also able to peel of the boiled egg skin. Some of the skills which he is still being trained on his skills to brush his teeth, feed himself, wear clothes and differentiate the front and back part of a T-shirt independently.
Jason who is a day scholar, comes to school by car and has been trained to buckle his own seat belt when he gets into the car. Even though Jason still has a long way to go but he is already showing some improvement.
We at St Nicholas Home are very proud of Jason’s good progress and with donations received through Global Giving; we can continue to help Jason and other children in the program towards improving their lives for a bigger and brighter future! Therefore, we would like to thank all our contributors for your support and donations
