Aziah – group time

Aziah has cerebral palsy which means she needs specialist equipment or an adult to support her body. The nursery setting make sure all of the children at the setting can join in as much as possible at group times and have specialist equipment for Aziah which enables her to sit on the floor with the other children. The activities at group time are designed to include all of the needs of the children in the group. Aziah has cerebral palsy. Find out more about Aziah and her condition here.
