Diagnosis: weakness in right hand and leg
Layla had a cyst removed from her brain when she was a baby. She”s been very healthy since then. She currently has some weakness in her right hand and right leg. However, she does use her hand and she’s taking step while holding on to one hand of an adult. She can sit on her own, crawls independently around objects, walks on her knees and can walk on her feet while holding one hand of an adult. She moves around in a walker and climbs on physical therapy equipment and toys. She repeats words and understands everything said to her. She follows simple directions and plays with toys. The staff reports that she does not have any mental delays. She has a very happy personality and eagerly engages with staff. She receives physical therapy daily. She walks using both legs and will use her right hand as well. In the videos taken in July 2014, she is opening her right hand and taking steps with her right leg.
Additional photos and videos from July 2014 are available.
Because we only have this child’s file for a short time, she will not be able to receive donations until a family is found for her.
