Aiden and Brian's Annual trip to the Stan Cassidy Center for Rehabilitation

The boys made their annual trip to the Stan Cassidy Center for Rehabilitation, in Frederiction this week. For anyone not familiar with this Center  here is a link to their site. SCCR

They have an expert team of specialists in many disciplines including Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Respiratory Therapy, Recreational Therapy, Dietian, Social Work, the Fundy Chaper of Muscular Dystrophy Director, all coordinated by a Paediatric Medical Director who has become very familiar with the family over the years they have been seeing them. 

We are very fortunate to have these services available for us, here in Canada, at no cost to the boys and their family.

Several areas of concern and needs were addressed by the parents and team. Then, plans were formulated to work towards achieving these goals. It was a very busy, information packed, but productive day for the boys, their Mom, Dad and me (Grammie).

The boys took a few minutes break in the center's gymnasium, which is fully equipped for assessment  and play for all various levels of ability.

After getting bored with all the "technical talk', Aiden borrowed Grammie's camera to do a little photographing on his own.
