Friend for my 6yo with CD

Hi, my 6 year old daughter has cortical dysplasia with a monoplasia of her right leg.  She is desperate to make a friend who wears a splint like she does.  I know it's difficult in the current climate but does anyone know of any resources for disabled kids to meet people like them? We live in Yorkshire. Thanks in advance.

    Hello @lucymaytreacle

    Welcome to the community, hope you're well.

    It's a strange one, you don't often hear of programmes designed to bring disabled children together, those sorts of things are only really aimed at adults, however I imagine they must be out there somewhere.

    I'm also in Yorkshire, and when I was trying to find out how I could get involved with the local sight loss community I spoke with my local council, they had a list of all the activities in the area aimed towards  visually impaired people and disabled people.

    Might be a place to start.

    Also, have you searched Facebook for support groups themed on your child's condition, members in there may also be able to advise :)
