Wasae, Age 19

Wasae, Age 19

Wasae is a sweet 19-year-old boy who has cerebral palsy and is severely disabled. He is wheelchair bound and is dependent upon others for all his needs. His primary mobility is dependent on wheelchair use and maximum assistance with all transfers and caregiving. He demonstrates limited strength and balance with atypical movement patterns in sitting and during assisted walking. He is limited by his cognition, vision, and significantly low muscle tone.

MPFC has partnered with the Small Angels Foundation to provide a $7,500 grant for Wasae to attend Therasuit Intensive Program at Anaheim Hills Pediatric Therapy.

His goals for therapy are:

– Sustain side sitting bilaterally for 60 seconds with no external support

– Independently roll to and from  prone and supine

– Sustain quadruped 30 seconds with minimal assistance

– Be able to maintain neutral positioning while in supine for 20 secondsTransition from side sitting to quadruped with minimum assist
