    Bonjour,
    je lis votre commentaire et vous apporte un témoignage; notre fille Célia, a aujourd’hui 21 ans et a le syndrome M.CMTC avec malformation d’Arnold Chiari , hypotonie musculaire, etc. Elle a une joie de vivre communicative et nous étonne tous par sa résistance “nerveuse”.
    Nous sommes en France et sommes venus vivre en petite ville pour lui permettre de rester plus à son rythme. Elle aime la vie, elle aime les gens et est très épicurienne! Elle va à la chorale et adore la musique. Elle a pu aller au lycée en classe adaptée jusqu’en 2011 mais la loi en place de puis l’année dernière ne lui permet plus d’assister aux cours en auditeur libre. Elle apprend différemment. A bientôt peut-être sur le net.

    Hello,
    I read your comment and support you with a testimony our daughter Celia, now 21 and M.CMTC syndrome with Arnold-Chiari malformation, hypotonia, etc.. She has a joie de vivre “joe of life” and surprises us all by her communicative ability to “nervous” resistance .
    We are in France and came to live in town for it to stay longer at their own pace. She loves life, loves people and is very Epicurean! She goes to the choir and loves music. She was able to go to school in special education until 2011, but the law in place last year does not allow her to attend auditory courses. She learns differently. Soon perhaps on the net.

    Kaity is a beautiful girl who will brighten up any room and any life with her presence! She loves to hear stories, go in the lake with her brother and sister, and play with her toys. She has an amazing Mom and Dad who will do anything for her. We love to visit with her and see how much she learns from week to week.
