meet ilyse!

Ilyse was referred to TLFI when she was eleven months old for feeding complications, sensory processing challenges, and global delays. She could crawl, but needed assistance to stand and walk. She ate stage one baby foods, but would not tolerate food with texture. She would get upset if her hands got messy, and was fearful of anything that resembled a "kush ball."

With the support of her family, Ilyse responded positively to her therapy.  After eighteen months, she now walks, runs, jumps with both feet off the floor, and can open doors. She has come to tolerate new textures and no longer upsets easily if her hands get messy. She enjoys stringing beads, and doodling. Ilyse likes singing, dancing, and playing outside; but, she still does not like being near a "kush ball." She is a strong-willed and loving girl. We can't wait to see what she does next!
