The delight of watching the Sirianni family at play on their new, NDIS funded monkey bars, The Combat Ninja by Funky Monkey Bars is infectious.
Mum Naomi said the new Funky Monkey Bars frame in their backyard was NDIS approved gym equipment for ‘active play’, as recommended by 8-year-old Archer’s therapists, and the family relished in every opportunity to get outdoors together.
Archer has a rare genetic syndrome, Coffin-Siris Syndrome. He also has Partial Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum, Epilepsy, is non-verbal and is a super happy, active and able-bodied boy.
One of Archer’s long term NDIS goals is to interact with peers and his brother, 9-year-old Luca, and one of the best ways Naomi and Dad, Daniel, identified to support this goal was through ‘active play’ on NDIS approved products.
Naomi said, “The Combat Ninja set-up has transformed the way the two boys interact. Luca likes to help Archer achieve new heights and Archer allows him to do so all with a smile on his face.
The Sirianni family started with soft play games in and around the home, which led to more substantial supports such as climbing and riding.
When they saw the Funky Monkey Bars exhibit at the Source Kids Disability Expo in Melbourne, the family found exactly what would work to enhance and support Archer’s NDIS goal.
“Both Luca and Archer could not be happier with their new support system,” Naomi said.
“It is masterful to watch and we could not be prouder.”
