Jiajia was born in 2008 with brain damage and a cognitive impairment. His grandparents are his primary caregivers and have been providing home therapy from an early age.
As well as looking after Jiajia, his grandparents are also taking care of his four-year-old sister. Jiajia’s grandfather is in his seventies now and with his health, his main responsibilities at home are cooking, doing household chores, and taking his granddaughter to school.
Jiajia and his grandmother regularly take their two-hour journey (which includes taking three different buses) to our Kai Fu District Care Centre for his afternoon sessions at FPP. These include Special Education and Therapy according to his needs.
Jiajia and his grandmother have been coming to FPP since 2012. His grandmother loves bringing him to class, and Jia Jia has made great progress.
Recently, Jiajia’s grandmother brought in a large bag of oranges to thank the FPP staff, as a gesture to show her appreciation for how the programme has supported her and her grandson. She has also attended FPP events herself such as the Karaoke outing and had a wonderful time with the team and other caretakers!
