What talents, hobbies or interests does Hayley have?
She loves movies, singing, dancing, drawing and writing.
What fun activities do you like to do as a family?
We love going to the bush as often as possible and spending time in Dullstroom with the boys fly fishing.
What therapies or interventions have benefitted Hayley the most?
Hayley has been in therapy since she was 6 months old: OT, Speech and Physiotherapy. We feel that the early start was really beneficial. She has also been on special supplements from America from 6 weeks of age. We had her in a mainstream school with a facilitator from an early age as we noticed that she learnt quickly by watching other children.
What are your dreams for your child?
In the future we would like Hayley to be as independent as she can, with a loyal circle of friends and working doing something that she enjoys. We want her to have a sense of responsibility and to feel that she is making a difference with her endeavors.
