Vanessa is an 11-year-old girl who began having seizures when she was one year and five months old. She possibly had a stroke as well causing the paralysis on the left side of the body. After talking to her mom about the incident, it is possible that there wasn’t any seizure but just a stroke. They took her immediately for medical treatment and she was sent to MAP for physical therapy where she stayed until they restored her ability to walk. They have not had any more therapy since then and she continues to experience weakness and partial paralysis of the left arm and hand. There is very little active movement of the arm distal from the elbow. Vanessa enjoys playing with her friends and sports, she also enjoys doing chores around the house.
