Tiwi is 8 years old, who YPK Bali met for the first time in July 2019. Tiwi is a twin, her sibling has cerebral palsy who, like Tiwi, came to YPK to access our services and support. During her first year in YPK, Tiwi was introverted and was greatly dependent on her parents for support. Tiwi found it difficult to eat, and hold a pencil. Initially, Tiwi found it challenging to read and she was afraid to meet new people.
Tiwi’s mother was a true inspiration and helped her daughter to learn to build trust with those around her and have positive interactions with others. She always quietly sat beside her daughter and aided her to adapt to a new routine at YPK.
