Dexter's a happy, cheeky kid, has a vision impairment cerebral palsy (spastic quadriplegia level 4). He's beaten cancer! His determination is admirable!

This introduction video is aimed at Dexter's new classmates, who may be curious about his wheelchair, his cerebral palsy and his being nonverbal. It has a brief  medical history and shows lots of fun things Dexter does, including his therapies. Hopefully, his classmates will see this and recognise Dexter's strengths, rather than just see his disabilities. #cerebralpalsy #wheelchair #mainstream #inclusive www.lovedexter.weebly.com

Introducing Dexter - a child's version. Starting mainstream kindergarten, Dexter's classmate will no doubt have some questions about Dexter. Hopefully, this .

Being a premmie baby, with under-developed lungs when he was born, Dexter has a chronic lung condition. He has had several bouts of pneumonia and spent many nights in hospital. Because of his hepatoblastoma, Dexter needed weekly hospital trips, to maintain his central line and have weekly blood tests. This is for the local hospital.

While we are always happy to walk out of the hospital doors, we do like the Wollongong Hospital. Wollongong wasn't my first hospital.

Dexter on the flying fox, without his wheelchair. Hear his chuckle at the start? See him working on focusing on the lady helping him? He loved this and we are so grateful for this incredible opportunity! No limits!

Dexter's trialling an eyegaze system. It's been wonderful watching him engaging with the great technology. He is doing better than we had hoped. Technology is amazing! He operates this with his eyes... and, the red sections of the picture are where his eyes spent the most time 'looking'.

Dexter using his eyes to crack the egg... wherever his eyes are looking on the screen, the cursor moves. He has been playing some games, learning to use the technology and working on developing his focus and vision. #cvi
