Case Taylor is a four year old who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth. Case has been enrolled at North Florida Child Development since October 2014. Cerebral palsy (CP) is a broad diagnostic term used to describe a problem with movement and posture, due to damage or abnormalities in the brain that makes certain activities difficult. It is the most common motor disorder and the second-most common disability found in children.
NFCD’s Specialists and Staff have continuously worked with local disability service providers including Children’s Medical Services (CMS) and the Gulf County School District to ensure that Case receives all necessary equipment and therapies. Case receives all of his therapies (language, physical, & occupational therapy) on-site at the center in his natural environment.
While at NFCD Case has been able to acquire several beneficial pieces of equipment, including a wheelchair, that aid in his development. Sending Case to school was not easy due to him having cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus. The staff and teachers at NFCD have been very caring and dedicated to helping Case achieve new and exciting goals each and every day.”Andrew Taylor, Case’s Father
