Embark on the Inspiring Journey of Chloe:

IMG 20230325 WA0000A Capability Scotland Case Study In the heart of Edinburgh, 12-year-old Chloe stands as a testament to resilience, courage, and the transformative power of support. Diagnosed with autism, anxiety, and selective mutism, Chloe faced challenges that many could scarcely comprehend. At home, Chloe found her voice, but the outside world posed a different set of hurdles. It was here that she discovered the profound impact of Capability Scotland's Youthzone—a haven where her unique journey began to unfold.

Meet Socky, Chloe's unwavering companion, a toy dog that became a symbol of solace and connection in her life. With Socky by her side, Chloe navigated the Youthzone in Edinburgh, a safe space that served as the canvas for her communication and socialization skills to flourish.

She delved into the realms of baking, cooking, themed arts & crafts, and chalk drawings under the expansive open sky. The magic of Cool Creatures became a source of wonder and joy.

Witness the transformation—a once-shy smile now radiates confidence. Chloe strides into each session with Socky in hand, embracing newfound friendships and embarking on adventures that were once beyond her reach. Chloe's progress is nothing short of inspiring, but this is merely the prologue to her journey.
