I love this picture of Matt participating in a his school's swimming gala at the end of last year. For me it symbolises inclusion. The question was never - should Matt participate in the gala? nor was it can Matt swim well enough to be included?
His inclusion was a given.
The question was what support does Matt require to participate?
And in this picture you can see what supports were put in place... a kick board, flotation ring, and a friendly pair of arms (just in case).
And Matt was BEAMING.
Especially at the end of his second race when all of his classmates and children from other classes were all chanting GO MATT! GO MATT!
