“When I found out about CIMT and after reading the testimonials I was adamant to get him on a programme. I felt like it was exactly what he needed!”Hannah, Reggie's Mum.
Reggie struggled to achieve functional movement and control of his right arm. Reggie also struggled with consistent grasp and release and keeping objects in his hand. Reggie showed a strong preference to his left side and throughout the programme, we worked on increasing awareness in use of his right arm to make a meaningful difference.
“The team were incredible! Ruth is a very very special person and we love her!”Hannah, Reggie’s mum.
“We get physio and OT sessions at home but they are few and fare between. I really felt like Reggie was ready to move forward with certain things but was being held back.”Hannah, Reggie’s mum.
“Everything has been amazing I am super super happy!”Hannah, Reggie’s mum.
“My advice for other parents would be - go for it! Even if it’s just a slight improvement that’s worth it!”Hannah, Reggie’s mum.
CIMT involves constraining the stronger arm in a lightweight cast and completing rehab of the weaker arm and hand, which for children is undertaken through play and meaningful functional activities. Having the cast on for 4 weeks has allowed Reggie to focus on only using his affected arm in activities which increases awareness of his right upper limb. This helps to stimulate formation of new pathways for movement and in turn helps to rewire the brain.Learn More
The high intensity and repetitive use of Reggie’s affected upper limb over a relatively short period of time had produced lasting changes not only in the amount and quality of movement of his weaker arm and hand but within activities involving both hands.

Reggie was so much fun to work with! We, therapists, thought hard to make activities enjoyable for him whilst developing the skills he needed to improve functional use of his right hand and arm. Reggie's has persevered in using his right hand within challenging activities which he can be successful in completing. This has resulted in improvements in real world use of his right hand over the course of his 4 week programme with improvements continuing at home after CIMT is completed!Learn More
