Spiro’s Medicine Ball – Weight Bearing with Hypotonic CP with his favorite PT

Spiro works very hard during his PT sessions still 4 years later trying to learn how to stand on his own.  Weight Bearing is really hard work for him and hit Hypotonic CP.  We do this for his Hips and Bones to stay strong.  He has such great work ethic during his PT and OT sessions.  He is truly my hero the strength he shows doing such hard activities with his mild Hypotonia too.

Amusement park fun, yee-haw!

Going on rides in amusement parks can be limiting for people with disabilities. We made sure to get Nate on every ride he was able. The day ended with sweaty grins and contentment of a well spent day with family.
