Jed also likes to play football and plays for Chacewater ability counts and will be going to Newton Abbott this August to play in a tournament representing Cornwall.

Jed's dad is a local farmer from Truro and said this about the SO programme: "It's a great thing, it has given him a chance to compete, make new friends and become happier and more confident. He looks forward to every session."

Social impact - Jed has become more independent since he joined SO through the LD Active Kernow programme, he is now able to get from one place to another without too much help. Jed's communication has improved and he now has something he looks forward to and is interested in. Jed studies games of NBA Basketball, which he enjoys doing with his friends.
