Pediatric Patient of the Month:
Zinnia has been receiving outpatient Physical and Occupational therapy services at NOCH outpatient rehabilitation since last summer with Jenn & Lauren. She has made fantastic improvement with both her feeding and fine motor skills in OT, including expanding her list of accepted foods and viewing meal times as more of an adventure — just ask Jenn, who now has a chocolate pudding painting hanging at her desk! She is progressing beautifully in physical therapy with Jenn with her walking and mobility and is becoming more independent with both every day.
Zinnia always brightens up the therapy clinic with her smile, elaborate stories and special songs. Her parents have been amazing, attending weekly therapy and actively participating in each session. In the future, if you’re looking for a good veterinarian (based on her favorite therapy game)… we’re pretty certain “Dr. Zinnia McStuffins” will be the lady for the job!
“Zinnia is working on becoming an independent walker with her walker. She works hard on increasing her core strength in PT and aqua therapy. Zinnia works hard to try new foods with different textures. She is also working on hand strength and fine motor skills. We are so proud that Zinnia can now walk with a walker…we were told by doctors that she would never walk. Zinnia LOVES OT & PT….she thinks she is just playing, but she is really working hard. It’s her favorite part of the week!” Great job, Zinnia!
