Passionate, straight-talking and someone who not only teaches this stuff - but lives it.
We're talking 24-hour-postural management, body symmetry and nighttime positioning with Sarah Clayton from Simple Stuff Works.
Sarah is passionate about posture! And her passion is highly contagious. She has worked with families of children living with complex disability since the late 1990’s and her life’s mission is to enable parents and practitioners to help put an end to avoidable complications such as hip dislocations and scoliosis. On top of that, she's grown up in a family where 24-hour-postural management is in the blood (with her dad being the brain behind the Goldsmith Indices used to measure body symmetry) and she's been in the thick of it since 2007 when her daughter Abigail was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour at aged 6.
And so now in 2019, Abi is doing well at a mainstream college with additional support and Sarah has three other children, works full time as a "therapeutic night time positioning & measurement of body symmetry" specialist for Simple Stuff Works and can regularly be found wearing her jumper inside out.
And also in 2019 I am excited to be able to interview Sarah and dig into all things related to making postural management work in the real world!
If you're equally passtionate about body posture or you're struggling to make 24-hour-postural management work with equipement and families, this podcast is a must listen
