John – Equipment Breakage and a Two-Pronged Approach
‘John’ is a 22 year old young man who currently resides at St. Mary’s Home in Norfolk, VA. John was shaken as a baby at 6 weeks of age and, as a result, has a brain injury, hydrocephalus, and uncontrolled seizures (Lennox Gestaut syndrome). He lived in foster care until the age of 15 when he started experiencing potine hemorrhages (strokes) in his brain. At that point, he came to St. Mary’s. Suzanne Payne Eason, an Occupational Therapist with St. Mary’s, has followed John since he first arrived and she first introduced him to Dynamic Seating.

“Because of John’s unique and challenging diagnosis, I believe that had he not had the ability to move, his level of activity or arousal would be significantly diminished.”
