Born with lissencephaly, a rare brain disorder making it unlikely she will ever talk, walk or feed herself, her Aubin Grove family continue to give her the best chance to improve.

But even with the family’s continued efforts, a helping hand was always going to be needed. That came when Amalie was accepted into the Conductive Education program at Carson Street School in East Victoria Park just shy of her first birthday.

The program helps children with damage to the central nervous system learn how to overcome the challenges they face.

Amalie receives care twice a week and mum Renae couldn’t be more happy with the results.

Returning the helping hand, Mrs Telo is now busy organising a gala fundraiser for the charity that has helped her daughter.

The Dinner for Dreams will be held on May 10 at the Astral Ballroom, Crown. Email events@conductiveedwa.com.au for more information.
