Biography

Anna was born a little premature and was diagnosed with Down’s syndrome at four months old after struggling to feed and put weight on.

She had many early intervention therapies to help her develop physically and cognitively. She was diagnosed as hearing impaired at two years old and given hearing aids to wear. By the age of three she was still unable to walk and after further investigation was diagnosed with severe hyper mobility particularly in her hips, knees and ankles. She eventually mastered walking which enabled her to investigate the world a little more. Speech continues to be an area of weakness and even when backed up by basic sign language, Anna still struggles to make herself understood. Sleep is a problem due to aching joints and inefficient breathing at night meaning many restless nights. She continues to attend many hospital appointments and has a number of therapies regularly.

Despite all these challenges she is still a happy girl with a zest for life!
