My granddaughter was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, profound deafness and moderate to sever brain injury due to an illness as an infant. Her dad moved with her to Palo Alto when Amber was just 8 years old. She had never taken a step on her own and relied upon the use of a wheelchair and a walker to get around. When Amber stepped into the warm water at the Betty Wright Swim Center, she walked on her first for the very first time - or more appropriately, she RAN through the water unassisted. Eventually she was able to repeat that experience on land Amber is now 16 and continues to be served by the Betty Wright Swim Center as well as the After School Socialization Program at Abilities United. Abilities United has made a profound difference in our lives!
