At 3 & 1/2 years old Grace was formally diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. She has a lot of fine and gross motor skills problems including inability to jump or high kneel and limited leg/eye coordination. She does however run everywhere and is very active. She also seeks a lot of sensory feedback from her environment often mouthing toys/objects.
