"Nolan is happy and motivated in therapy. His biting and chewing have improved which has allowed Nolan the opportunity to expand his diet and eat more of a variety of foods. Nolan has a greater independence using utensils to feed himself, and is now able to express his needs and wants through vocalizations combined with signs. "
"Nolan is an active, sweet, little boy who always likes to make physical therapy sessions interesting and fun. He has improved his core strength by sitting on a swing by himself which he struggled with when beginning therapy. He has shown improvements in his balance and leg strength by requiring less help and has decreased falls when standing up from the floor as well as negotiating stairs. He is a fast mover so always likes to give his therapist a good workout as well!"

"Nolan has made many gains since starting therapy. Initially, he struggled with maintaining an upright posture while seated in a typical chair, scooping with a spoon, and stabbing food with a fork. He now demonstrates significantly improved postural control and can complete a task using both of his hands while seated in a typical chair. He can also independently eat with a spoon and is able to consistently stab food with a fork. Nolan has also demonstrated improved eye hand coordination and overall fine motor skills. His happy demeanor and smile brings so much joy to MSS!"
