Lauren is a 7-year-old girl who suffers from cerebral palsy, microcephaly, global delay, and epilepsy. Lauren is unable to walk without assistance and currently uses a gait trainer to help build strength in her legs and to actually try to learn to walk. She, in fact, is so eager to try to walk that she gets very impatient and frustrated because she can’t.
Lauren loves Yo Gabba Gabba, Spongebob, and Sesame Street. She has 2 cats, Oreo and Maui, and she loves them very much. Lauren loves being around people and enjoys meeting people and interacting with them.
Lauren’s mom says that Lauren is constantly moving and cannot sit still. There have been multiple occasions where Lauren would be excited about dinner and would actually rock and tip the chair over and sustain injuries. Her family needs a safer option for Lauren at mealtime, and her physical therapist and physician have prescribed a Rifton Activity Chair, which, unfortunately, is not covered by insurance.
