The Gift of Mobility

“Parker Ann was a happy baby, though she wasn’t meeting the typical milestones of sitting up, rolling over, and crawling. At ten months old, she was officially diagnosed with Agenesis of Corpus Callosum (ACC). In Parker Ann’s brain, the corpus callosum, which connects the two cerebral hemispheres, is absent. Because of this, her motor, sensory, and cognitive growth are delayed.

We were determined to help Parker, so we enrolled her in the conductive education program. We noticed incredible improvement in just four weeks! In addition to conductive education, Parker Ann also saw speech, physical, and occupational therapies.

As with many therapies, conductive education isn’t covered by insurance. We were thankful to learn about Family Hope Foundation. With the help of a scholarship, Parker Ann was able to continue the treatment that was making an impact. Parker Ann can now sit, roll, crawl, walk ten feet independently, and follow simple instructions! The Family Hope Foundation scholarship was truly a blessing.”
