Youngster 'to return to school after stroke'
27th January 2011

A girl of 12 who was left partially paralysed after experiencing a stroke, has returned to school.

The South Wales Argus reports that Kayleigh Ward, 12, from Newport, will now attend school for a few hours a week until she feels strong enough to return full time.

The schoolgirl had a stroke in October, which left her paralysed down one side and she has since undergone physiotherapy in an attempt to regain some movement.

Her mother told the newspaper: "Kayleigh's been looking forward to school and it will be great for her to be surrounded by her peers."

This comes after the Manchester Evening News reported that a father-of-three took up painting while recuperating from a stroke and is now to hold his first exhibition.

Daniel Adams, 36, who was a landscape gardener at the time, had a stroke after being attacked on his way home from a party.
