Story of Plum: A Girl with Undiagnosed Developmental Delays
“Thank you so much for the incredible work you and your practitioners did with our daughter, Plum. When we first came to see you, Plum was 11 months old. She could sit if put in that position, but could bring herself to sit and could not crawl. She had rolled over at four months but now was only very rarely rolling over. Her pediatrician suggested that she may be fine or she may not and that there was nothing to do but ‘wait and see.’ Luckily, we discovered your work.
Her first lesson with you was fundamentally transformative. You recognized a base problem—that Plum had no idea she could move on her own in space, and worked with both me and her to teach her that she had the ability to move on her own. She had three follow-up lessons with Maralee and, within a week of these lessons, she was not only bringing herself to sit but crawling around the room.
Subsequent lessons with you, Maralee, Cheryl, and Neil have helped improve her balance and range of motion, allowing her to move more comfortably in her body. We continue to do lessons with Neil to help her transition smoothly between movements.
This weekend was Plum’s 2nd birthday. She spent the day running around happily, jumping, kicking balls, swinging and sliding.
We cannot thank you enough for all your work. Your insight, methods, and ways of practicing are unique and uniquely needed.”
