Judson hit his goal today during our telehealth session! He has been working hard to gain bilateral upper extremity strength. He had a goal of completing 15 push-ups (from his toes!) with 0 rest breaks. He has been working hard in occupational therapy sessions by doing planks, yoga, and push-ups. He has also done a great job practicing on his own at home. In recent weeks, Judson has shown great improvements with his form and overall endurance. Today, all of his hard work finally paid off- he reached his goal!
