Three years ago Anne Marie McIntosh set up the Shay Foundation for Conductive Education in Trinidad and Tobago offering an annual summer camp for children with cerebral palsy.
I do not usually note such summer camps as they are not that unusual these days, but this one is offering the children a rare opportunity to experience Conductive Education in their own country, half-way across the world from any nearer services.
So I am very pleased to say that it is still going and the 2014 camp will run from 4 -22 August as the MOIRA Conductive Education Centre of Budapest is sending two conductors to provide Conductive Education for the children.
Like other small ventures, the Foundation has to make a charge for each child to cover costs etc, and one mother is appealing for funds to help her three-tear-old son attend this year.
I do hope she is successful and that there continues to be at least an annual opportunity for the children of Trinidad and Tobago to experience and learn from Conductive Education.
