    Celebrating “Inchstones” in SMA

    A mother’s perspective: How our family measures progress since treatment

    You couldn’t picture a happier or more beautiful little boy than the one who came into our lives on January 4, 2019. Little did we know, this bundle of joy we named Slade was just starting a journey that was going to change our family’s life.

    About 2 weeks after Slade was born we started to notice that he appeared to be a bit floppy. Our pediatrician chalked it up to him being a calm baby and told us he’d eventually grow out of it. With my husband being a chiropractor and my background in early childhood development, we knew something was wrong–we could just feel it.

      • Disability in Media
        This forum is for discussions about disability portrayal in books, movies, tv shows, music and other forms of media. We will discuss books like the popular memoir “Laughing at my Nightmare” by Shane Burcaw, an author who has SMA. The idea is to explore how disability is portrayed in mainstream media, and to look for content written and produced by people with disabilities. Suggestions are always welcome.
