I am the mother of a precious one year old, Kanan Moore. Kanan suffered an oxygen brain injury last year in August, and was released from Texas Children’s Hospital the following October. We were blessed with Easter Seals’ Early Childhood Intervention services and I could not ask for a better therapy plan, our team of staff was awesome in every way. It started with an evaluation to see if Kanan would qualify for services. The two Early Intervention Specialist that came were so nice and respectful, they made me feel my child was in the best hands. A week later therapy services started with Mrs. Charisse, a PT and she is the best. I knew then that my son was in the best hands. After two months, Mrs. Shama and occupational therapy were added to Kanan’s schedule; and she is equally amazing. Two weeks later – speech therapy started with Ms. Bridget. We have the best therapy team a mother could ask for – they are the best support group and love my son. I can see it as they work with him. Everything that the ladies teach me I apply it with my son.
The things that the doctor said that my son would never do – Mrs. Charisse, Mrs. Sharma, Ms. Bridget and Kanan proved them wrong. Easter Seals Greater Houston is the best organization that anyone would be lucky to be a part of and I thank you for sending me such amazing and talented staff to work with my son. I tell them every day how awesome they are! They’re not only here for my son, they are here for me as well. I couldn’t ask for a better support system. As I am writing this I am shedding tears because I didn’t think my son would speak words and now he is up to five words. I did not think my son would stand and he’s now standing, crawling and we’re also working on walking. His left hand was non-mobile/non-responsive but since working with Mrs. Shama my son is now using his left hand to eat bacon! The Easter Seals Infant/ECI Program is the best program that there is and I thank you every day. We look forward to every visit, whether in person or via #Telehealth!
Thank you, Belen, Kanan’s mommy
