A Day In Ariq’s School:


THE BRAND NEW HOPE

I went to my son’s school, Kitty Center, this morning just to see how he endures one therapeutic drill after another. Honestly, I’m glad that his condition is not as bad as we have always thought. I saw his other friends whose conditions are far more heartbreaking than him. Alhamdulillah, his progress is good and quite promising. So far all the officials and therapists at school have been cooperative as well as informative. They keep us informed whenever the school requires us to participate more in his therapies. They keep emphasizing that the best therapies would be the combination of those at home and school. They also tell us how to be a bit persuasive, in the sense of not being too pushy, whenever our son is bored and tired with all of his drills.

Another Fun Day With Therapy

Ariq, our first son, as we all know, suffers from cerebral palsy due to the lack of oxygen during the delivery process. This hampers his movements, coordination, balance and motoric skills. Since he enrolled in Kitty Center, a school for special needs, back in 2005, Ariq has purchased several therapeutic instruments that support his daily therapies such as AFO shoes, splints, bandages and peto chairs. The result has been quite good, alhamdulillah for he is able to follow all the drills without any major difficulties. Although he experienced some hard time but eventually he managed to conquer his obstacles. We are grateful that he does his therapies happily now, no more weeping nor complaining whatsoever. He does all the drills whole-heartedly.
