Mencap have launched a new campaign about protecting body shape for children, young people and adults with movement problems.

There are 6 short films and a booklet with some great stories of people that use this therapy and have done really well.

that's really interesting, particularly that they have managed to have no new hip dislocations over the course of a year in the targeted area - what a difference a change of emphasis can have! interesting that so few of the carers were using sleep systems, even if they had them, prior to being targeted by the team, too.

fortunately dd2 is now mobile enough not to have this concern (although she does have a lean to one side which we are monitoring) but we had our share of hip x-rays and mutterings.

thanks for posting!
