Kai has Down syndrome and began ECI services at about 2 months old. He has a team comprised of a physical therapist, occupational therapist, dietician and service coordinator.
Most recently Kai has started VitalStim® Therapy – an electronic signal to help build his swallowing skills.
Michelle, Kai’s OT and VitalStim® therapist, uses a variety of techniques to help Kai learn to swallow.
Already mom can see a difference, and thanks ECI for being his – and her – support.
“When I first found out Kai had Down syndrome, it was a very scary experience,” said Sabaiphone, Kai’s mom. “All the therapists have been very helpful in showing me what to do feeding-wise and exercise-wise so he can develop as much as he can at each stage. ECI has been very helpful to all of us. They are a great support when I need it.”
