Junior and his family are a blessing
Little Junior is 3 years old and one of the most adorable tiny humans GOT Ministries gets to work with.
We invite you to
IMAGINE THE IMPACT
we could have in this family
He has cerebral palsy, and crosses his legs and extends his whole body when trying to engage with his environment, because it's the only part of his body that he can somewhat control. We work with Junior to provide an opportunity for his body to experience different positions and engage with his environment. We do this through stretches, as well as activities for supporting weight on his hands/elbows and knees to prepare him for future crawling. Even though this is hard work for Junior by the end of the visits, he makes gurgling noises and cuddles into our side.
We are intentional about communicating with the mom regarding what we are doing, why, and the importance of integrating the therapy in the home. This is important so that Junior can experience other positions daily, which are important for eating, crawling and hopefully someday walking. Through occupational therapy, Junior and so many other kiddos can experience and participate in the world with a higher level of independence.
Junior has shown some significant gains since we began working with him in May of 2017. His mother has been so great to work with, and thankful for the opportunity to learn more about how to help her son engage with his environment.
**In order to have the impact that we desire in this family, we want....
-to encourage Junior's mother, Marta Lidia, in ways to help her son
-to support the family system and educate on the value that Junior has with his different abilities
-to teach the family about Junior's seizures, and how to respond appropriately, as well as the importance of medical care
-to help Junior grow and develop his potential
We seek to provide consistent therapy services for Junior and his family, in order to share hope and love for them, and to support Juniors growth and independence in the future.
Please consider partnering with us to serve little blessings like Junior.
