I know when to be quiet now.
Philip is a 4 years and 8 months old boy with congenital spina bifida. He is unable to walk well and may have problems controlling his bladder and bowels (going to the bathroom). Spina Bifida will obviously have considerable emotional effects, so he often experiences mood difficulties and low frustration tolerance with continuous crying. He has joined our class for 1 year and 9 months.
“When Philip entered the classroom at the beginning, he was unable to concentrate and kept watching other children. His emotions also affected others in the classes. Children born with myelomeningocele are at higher risk of lower extremity fractures, so Philip had to use orthotic device all the time. We are glad to share with you that he can walk smoothly with balance now, and also improved his hand positioning sense and functions. Through the musical activities, I found Philip can focus and follow the instructions well and beat the drums joyfully with confidence. Thank you again for your support and donation! It’s really a wonderful thing to see children’s progress in our classes.”
