Meet Josiah

Josiah was born with Down Syndrome and was 2 months premature, meaning he spent months post-birth in NICU and Special Care. Josiah is largely non-verbal at present, however communicates through laughs and key word signs. He cannot walk unassisted as he has hypotonia (low muscle tone). Thanks to our wonderful supporters, Josiah received his very own crocodile walker in 2019 allowing him to strengthen his muscles, gain independence and better mobility.

“Josiah is absolutely loving his crocodile walker, and is making such lovely improvements in taking assisted steps, having control in his leg and arm movements, strengthening his core and limbs, and confidence with movement. The progress takes time but is definitely evident, and so worth it. It has been such a blessing for our whole family to receive this gift from your organisation, we are still so thankful. Josiah has used the walker in front of family when they are over, and has everyone cheering with every step, and seems to love his newly found independence.”  Renata, Josiah’s proud Mum.
