Jemima Layzell Trust - Case Studies



Harry suffered a brain injury when he was shot at point-blank range by an air rifle. We donated a 'Dark Den' and sensory toys to help him relearn to use his left side of the body and improve his vision. This meant he could continue his therapy at home, in a fun way by playing with his brother.

The following year we donated a SATS Monitor so that his parents could finally get a good night's sleep, instead of lying awake, monitoring his seizures themselves.

Such progress has been made that Harry is now in line with his peers and is starting school in September. To support him with this we have given him an iPad.

Harry's dad told us "Harry still suffers with seizures often and he finds it hard to walk , but his development over these past few years has been fantastic. All of this is a small price to pay to still have him here with us today.

He struggles with his emotions and normal day-to-day routines but he is just like any other boy his age, always eating and arguing with his brother."
