We had the opportunity to work with a non-traditional patient for our aquatic therapy project. Our patient was a cute three year old girl named Addie who had cerebral palsy. our goal for Addie was to work on strengthen and control of her body while doing basic activities such as sitting, standing, pushing up, and grabbing things. Most days she came in ready to go and participate in the activities and some days she would fake being tired. It was always a fun time though. The most rewarding part was seeing her come in happy every day and the video her mom shared with us of her crawling for the first time by herself.
