Mikey entered the world just over 4 weeks early on January 29th 2016. Mikey suffered a lack of oxygen during his final hours in the womb which caused Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE), severe brain damage. This damage has resulted in a main diagnosis of spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and further diagnosis of epilepsy, hearing loss, microcephaly and global developmental delay.
Mikey’s main diagnosis of cerebral palsy means he has to work extremely hard to do the things we take for granted every day like holding a spoon, sitting independently and standing. Mikey has been lucky enough to secure a spot at NAPA (Neurological and Physical Abilitiation) a block of intensive therapy for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week for 3 weeks which commences on Mikey’s 2nd birthday. The 3 week intensive program is based on strengthening and conditioning, decreasing unwanted reflexes, and teaching new improved motor patterns through repetition and correct alignment.
