Lawson is a sweet 3-year-old boy who has cerebral palsy and epilepsy. He was diagnosed at 6 months old with infantile spasms. He went through 10-12 months of various anti-epileptic drugs, which resulted in him having to undergo a left functional hemispherectomy in November of 2020. After this surgery, he developed hydrocephalus and had to have a total of 6 more surgeries for VP shunt and he had a Gtube placed because he developed oral aversion. He has major right side weakness because of the surgery and right sided hemiplegia cerebral palsy.
His goals in intensive therapy are:
– Learn to stand independently with the hope of taking steps in the future.
– Use of his right hand and strengthen the muscles in his right leg
– Learn to eat with a spoon/fork
– Drink with an open cup
Lawson is a very determined little boy and is eager to learn and improve. MPFC approved a $2,500 grant for DMI therapy with Blossom & Grow in February and March 2023. We cannot wait to see how much Lawson improves and grows from his therapy sessions!
