meet remy!

Remy was a year old when he first came to TLFI with sensory issues, negative supporting reflex, and oral muscualture weakness with additional complications. He was unable to stand without support, and required a Gastrostomy Tube (G-Tube) to provide him with nourishment.

Remy started therapy. His family received training and instruction for using sensory diet activities, techniques for reflex integration, oral-sensory and oral-motor excercise, and strategies for feeding. Two months later, he began walking without support. Five months later, he was able to walk about while carrying larger objects! Remy must still rely on his G-Tube, but improved strength in his oral musculature has increased his food repertoire and his ablility to use a straw!
