Day 19

The pediatric model of Constraint Therapy was developed in 2007. Jacob first had the therapy when he was 16 months old. He is now 22 months old. He likely is the first child with his particular diagnoses to have participated twice before the age of 2. In the following clips, whipped cream is used as motivation for Jacob to extend his right pointer finger. We have been told that Jacob will never have independent use of his right fingers because of the extent of the damage to the left hemisphere of his brain...

  1. I am amazed at the progress Jacob has been making. He is such a beautiful little miracle (who looks more like Matthew every day).

    We love and miss you guys! Keep up the hard work Jacob!
