Andrew is a sweet 3-year-old boy who was born with a genetic disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Type 1. This has caused Andrew to have global development delays. MPFC awarded him a grant for intensive therapy at CLIMB. The therapy will be for 2 hours per day for 15 days. His shorter term goals for are transitioning from laying to sitting and sitting to lying. These transitions will bring Andrew a lot of independence in his daily living.
“We cannot thank the Maryam Parman Foundation for Injured Children enough for awarding our son $3,500 towards his first pediatric intensive therapy session in Spring Hill, Tennessee.
Andrew was able to receive 29 hours of Physical Therapy using a specialize technique, called Dynamic MovementIntegration (DMI). He had previously received some DMI therapy, but nothing like the variety and intensity they did at CLIMB Pediatric Intensive Therapy. He had a dedicated physical therapist for all 29 hours, and we couldn’t have been more impressed with her skill set, knowledge and persistence. As a mom, I was nervous how Andrew would react to his
new therapist and the intense schedule. Andrew surprised us all with his endurance, hard work and tolerance. He worked hard and greatly exceed many of his therapist’s goals for him.” Andrew’s Mom, Aleasha
