Time Is Motor Neurons

A father’s perspective: Our journey to finding a treatment

When Quinn, our soon-to-be-born daughter, didn’t make as much movement in the womb as our other 3 children, my wife, Annie, and I thought we had the “chillest” baby in the world. We joked that she was saving up all her energy for when she entered this world kicking and screaming. Quinn was born in August 2018, and she was the most beautiful little girl. Over the first few months, nothing seemed out of the ordinary. In fact, she appeared healthy and had strong upper body strength. But by the time Quinn’s 9-month check-up came around in June, her physical condition started to change.

      A friend of mine is an occupational therapist and has been sharing activities on her Facebook profile to do with your little ones while we’re all homebound. I especially loved this activity I’m about to share and asked her permission to do so!

      What you’ll need: white rice, distilled white vinegar, and some food coloring

      For every cup of rice, add 1/2 tsp of white vinegar and a few drops of food coloring in a bag and then shake. Then… let your child PLAY!

      There are so many great motor skills at work here. Scooping, opening/closing the ziplock bag, and using your hands to shake/mix up the rice.

      If your child is unable to receive therapy during this time, this could be a great alternative! Are there any innovative activities you’ve come up with that your child loves?
