The youngster challenging children’s perceptions of disability

An 11-year-old boy who has cerebral palsy, epilepsy and is unable to speak is visiting schools with his mum in a bid to change children’s perceptions of disability.

Gemma Cardona set up Paddy’s Purpose with The Dorset Children’s Foundation to “have children, like her son Paddy, be accepted and not feared”.

They spend up to three weeks in a school hosting interactive workshops and interacting with pupils.
