When our pediatrician expressed concern that our 4 month old son Thomas had weakness in his left arm and that it wasn’t moving the same way as his right we decided to act immediately and engaged with Hayley at Developmental Steps for physical therapy sessions. After an initial consultation and examination Hayley determined Thomas’s left arm was behind where it should be for his age. Together we discussed a plan and mutual goals – Hayley rapidly constructed a program for our son.
After 5 months of sessions we were amazed at how improved his arms movement range and strength were. In fact, it was our pediatrician who commented, “Had I not known, I never would have noticed anything; he looks great! By the end of sessions, Thomas was crawling at full pace on an inclined ramp and throwing a ball with his left hand better than his right!
The time spent with Hayley at Developmental Steps was absolutely critical to Thomas’s improvement. Hayley kept the program fun for our son while demonstrating compassion for worried parents – Hayley has amazing interaction skills with children and is excellent at communicating feedback to parents. We strongly recommend anyone with similar concerns to work with Hayley; your kids will thank you.
