Matty’s story

Matty is a remarkable four year old living with Down syndrome in Queensland.

After just one year, family and Supports by Design therapy workers assisted Matty learn how to sign, use pec cards, and develop fine motor skills (enabling him to feed himself, hold a pencil properly and use scissors).

Matty previously disliked touching anything that wasn’t normal to him due to sensory problems, but now he just loves playing in the sand.

We’re delighted to have contributed to the positive changes in this little man, and look forward to seeing what his future will bring!
