Recently, Vika began to sit on her own. And even if it is still ten minutes, but just a year ago one could only dream of it!

From birth, seizures of epilepsy destroyed the neurons in the brain and threatened the girl's life. It took several years to select a drug for epilepsy. But now the rehabilitation has become more intensive and regular.

In August of this year, Vika visited the Bobat Center rehabilitation center. This is the fifth trip in the past two years. There were four or five lessons every day. In physiotherapy exercises, the baby learned to stand on all fours and keep balance. In sensory integration classes, Vika learned our world by touch, and in occupational therapy she learned to eat and drink on her own. Most of all, our girl liked to swim in warm water.

Ten eventful days flew by like an instant. Homework received, there is a lot of work at home ahead.

Many mistakes of nature can be compensated for while the child is still small. To do this, Vika needs to undergo rehabilitation in specialized centers several times a year. Each course passed gives an impetus to development. And then all new achievements are consolidated by regular classes at home.

In August, we partially paid for the rehabilitation course and transferred 960 dollars to the clinic. Thank you for helping Vika! You give her the opportunity to develop despite the diagnoses.

The next trip to the Bobat Center is planned for January. Support Vika this time too! And then she will certainly please with new successes.
