Conductive Learning Center
We are pretty excited to be involved in this program. It is great to connect with another place that seems to know quite a bit about spina bifida. We have added many new stretches to our list. Whitney does not seem to mind them too much. We are doing them 2-3 times per day at home and going to the center once a week to start with. Their goal for Whitney is to stay on track developmentally. This means that instead of her sitting up whenever, which could be when she is 1, they get her to sit up around 6 months like normal. The short term goal is to increase her circulation and for her to kick her legs more. The long term goal is to potty train her and have her walking with a walker. It seems to me that her goals are realistic we just need to help her reach them. I am excited to watch Whitney continue to develop and grow. I know God has big plans for her life.
