Boy with cerebral palsy learns to sit up,

crawl and walk with a frame after special


school helps to 'RETRAIN' his brain
Sonny Pikett, seven, was born two months early and
struggling to breathe
His parents, Louise and Adrian, were told he had suffered
brain damage
They were also told that he would probably have cerebral
palsy
By the age of three he couldn't walk, talk, crawl or sit up
unaided
He then started at a special school for children with
disabilities - PACE
There, specialists use repetition to teach undamaged parts
of his brain to take over the function of some of the
damaged parts
He can now sit up, walk with a frame, crawl and
communicate
