My DD, Ariel has hypotonia, minimal brain loss, absent gag/swallow/suck reflex. She has been tube fed since birth. Given this, Ariel is a complete joy. SHe recieves PT< OT< and ST. SHe will soon be receiving special ed as well. Ariel can roll, hold her head up, sit, and smile. We're working on her building arm strenght in order to start crawling.

Here is her web site I'm in the process of updating.

Looking forward to meeting everyone!
