Six Special Momtreprenuers Who Are Working to Make a Difference in Our Community
Blogger: Building Up Baby
One Mama’s home therapy ideas for her sweet baby girl.
Her family: My husband, Patrick, and I are the very proud parents to four wonderful children: Gavin, 14; Mallory, 11; Claire, 3 and Hugh 1. Our Claire is my inspiration to push myself to “do hard things” every day.
Claire was born with an, as of yet, undiagnosed muscle disorder and cervical spine malformation. Shortly after her birth, I wrapped up my job as a Civil Engineer and my life began to revolve around her therapy. After a few years of regularly brainstorming creative ways to incorporate her therapy into our daily lives, I decided to chronicle my home therapy ideas in a blog. My goal is to capture some of what we do at home with Claire in order to inspire other caregivers of special needs kids to find ways to use day-to-day activities and materials to help increase strength as well as fine and gross motor skills. In addition to therapy ideas, I’m starting to share books, devices, toys, and specialized equipment that I’ve come across and personally used. I am not using my blog to make any income or promote any specific product or service. It is, simply, my dream to use my blog as a forum for parents to get and share therapy ideas.
