Disability Hydrocephaly

Samiya is a 3-year-old girl with hydrocephaly who cannot sit on her own. She has had surgery to have a shunt, or drain tube, placed in her head to drain off the excess fluid. We are currently working on getting her to lay on her tummy with her weight on her elbows, as well as getting her to sit on her own without support. Samiya is not yet used to us and gets upset when we come, this makes it difficult to do too much therapy with her. However, mom is doing all the things we recommended, and we hope to see improvement on our next visit.
