The Boy attended Conductive Education at The Therapy Place for 4 weeks! Friday was his last day, so I popped in a few minutes early and took a few shots of Cliff working super hard!
Cliff is working very hard on walking independently!
He can now crawl on hands and knees all the time. The Boy is also climbing onto and off of furniture. He is pulling to stand all by himself too! We are so proud of Cliff and all that he has accomplished in just 4 short weeks!
Cliff LOVES Ms. Krisztina!
Cliff chose a little Thank You gift for each of the aides and Ms. Krisztina from The Shop! He walked to each of the girls to give them their gifts! They also each got a BIG hug (and maybe even a kiss) from Cliff. The ladies better watch out - The Boy is a little charmer! I feel so great knowing that Cliff is in such wonderful hands while he is at The Therapy Place!
Everyone there is AMAZING.
They really LOVE all of these children to pieces.
These women are patient.
They are cheerleaders and coaches.
They know the perfect balance when to push and when to back off.
They BELIEVE in these children.
They KNOW that these children CAN when other's say they can't.
Most of all, these wonderful ladies are helping our children have the best opportunity to live as independently as possible.
I hope that we can all learn from these special women.
Their patience is like nothing I have ever seen.
They never give up.
With them, ANYTHING is POSSIBLE.
When other's shut their doors, they open theirs with welcome arms.
They have made huge sacrifices to dedicate their lives to helping these children with special needs - sacrifices we could never relate to.
I am so incredibly thankful that Cliff had the opportunity to work with them everyday.
His progress is amazing.
We are so proud.
We are to thankful.
To Krisztina, Katie, Eszter and Amanda ,
We cannot thank you enough! Cliff loves each of you so much and so do Ross and I! You are making such a huge difference in the lives of all of these wonderful kids that participate in The Therapy Place. You are putting your lives on hold and taking time out of your day to help these children have the brightest future. I speak for all of the parents when I say thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Each of you are amazing, talented and are making a huge impact in the lives of these children and their families.
We will be forever grateful.
Ross and I are so excited to share with you that Cilff will be attending Conductive Education at The Therapy Place 6 hours a day, five days a week, for the 2011 - 2012 school year. There will be some major changes in our lives as we transition from home based therapy to The Therapy Place, but we are so excited for Cliff and all of the resources he will have available to him. Another major change is that I will be homeschooling Cliff for this year to prepare him for Kindergarten (more on this will come soon!) - Please pray for me (LOL...no, really...)! It will be difficult for me to be away from Cliff for so much of the day, but I KNOW he is is wonderful hands and that he is right where he needs to be!
Cliff has one week off then we are full steam ahead and the most exciting part -
If Cliff has made such wonderful progress going to The Therapy Place 3 hours a day, 5 days a week for 4 weeks, IMAGINE what he will be doing by next Spring?!?!?
"He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted."
