I met Kenny* over two months ago,” said Daniel, a speech and language therapist at Hope Speaks. “He came in the therapy room with his grandmother and the she tried to explain the child's condition to me. She sounded so depressed at the time, but after our discussion, she was determined to do all the recommended exercises.” Kenny is an almost three-year-old boy who lives in the Nsambya slum of Kampala. He has cerebral palsy and seizures, which are now controlled by medication. After three weeks of therapy, Kenny was already making progress and formulating words.
