Back to the Bobath

Joshua was lucky to be selected to be a volunteer at the Early Intervention Programme. So today we started a 6 day intensive programme. He has been assigned two lovely physio's who are going to continue the work of trying to improve his upper body strength, so lifting his head and trying to bring his arms into use more. It's difficult for Josh though because he hasn't the visual stimulation. He had a wonderful session but unfortunately he had a seizure at the end which went on for about 15 minutes. But it's only been 3 days since he started his anti-epilepsy medication (Carbamazipine) so hopefully we'll have them under control soon.

Yay! Great news re Bobath! Is it to be longer than the 6 day intensive programme?

I do hope his epilepsy is soon controlled. Hugs to Joshua.
