Assistive Devices for Connor
So last week, in the midst of my recuperation, a nice man came to the house to measure Connor for a stander. The one we have is old, and only a loaner. They (the PIE Program, Early Intervention for Arlington County) are pruchasing one for Connor, so we'll have shiny new one that looks less Luddite. It's called the Giraffe, and is a prduct of Sammons Preston (www.sammonspreston.com). WE aslo took Connor to the therapy center where both his speech and physical therapists work to try out some swings. My parents are going to buy one swing for Connor and build the other. My parents take better care of Connor than I do most of the time. Of course, I'm still not even allowed to pick him up and am at my mother's mercy when it comes to holding him!
