F4B CLINICAL REVIEW PANEL

F4B has established a working group of volunteer medical and allied health practitioners who have a professional interest in adaptive sports and wellbeing programs for youth with learning & perceptual disabilities.  All F4B programs are designed, delivered and reviewed in consultation with our Clinical Review Panel to maximise the experience for participants and their families.

Developmental disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders and Intellectual Disabilities can hinder children from achieving their developmental potential, through adverse effects on learning, participation and access to information and services. World Health Organisation recognises the significance of focusing efforts on building capacities for timely detection and interventions, at primary health care and community level. - World Health Organisation, 2019

While working as a Radiation Therapist, Amy was accepted into medical school with five kids under the age of seven at home. The concept was inspired by their eldest son, Jacob, who was born with mild to moderate disability and struggles to find his place in the community.

“Jacob looks like a regular 13-year-old boy and has a high emotional intelligence yet suffers intellectual impairment, mild cerebral palsy and epilepsy among other things that make it really hard for him to connect and find success in his life,” she said.
