“I can’t say enough good things about ECI,” Diane, Madelyn’s mom, said relaying their story.
When Madelyn was born, the major arteries of her heart were switched. At 12 hours old she had emergency surgery.
“Everyone thought she was going to die,” mom said. “But she continued to flourish.”
Her ECI team included a service coordinator, physical therapist and speech therapist.
“She loved all of her therapists,” mom said. “She gravitated to them. They worked so hard, and they worked together on what Madelyn was struggling with.
“Within a matter of time, she started to blossom,” she added. “She went from not doing any tummy time, to slowly push her head up, then sitting, then crawling, and then standing. After a year,Madelyn no longer needed physical therapy.”
She’s doing fantastic. We graduated from ECI in June. She is developmentally where she is supposed to be.”
