was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at around a year old.
She has hemiplegia, wich is a form of CP.
She is 3 year old now and she is the sweetest kiddo you have ever met.
She worked so hard during all of her therapy sessions last 3 years,
Nicole had therapy 5
days a week since she was diagnosed, but when she turns 3 y.old all therapies was stopped.
She is not eligible for special education program at school, her insurance decline any therapies and transfer her to CCS MTU for services to children (birth to 21 years) with certain long term neurological or orthopedic disabilities.
This will not be the usual exercise therapy for Nicole. Rather, it can be called a place in which you are taught to adapt to you disability.
In addition, the new place is not suitable for children of 3 years old age at all.
The new treatment plan involves visits once a week for 3 months and than 2 times a month and 6 month once a month.
MASSAGE AND EXERCISES are necessary for paralized people daily.
Nicole has made big progress and continues to amaze us every day. She is warrior.
Our family can't afford necessary treatments and services which can really help, because we have only one parent who can work now.Our goal
is raise money for hippo therapy, swimming lessons, feeding therapy (Nicole has some chewing and swallowing difficalties), for some home gym equipment.
I try to collect some money for extra PT/OT cause only daily activities can improve Nicole's results.
All together will improve fine and gross motor skills if we will have it systematically.
Probably, she will get a chance buckle her shoes or put on clothes without help or any other simple things ...like holding a cup, open bag or box, ride on bicycle...
Our family greatly appreciated for any help.
