Happy Birthday, Hudson!

Hudson with Mom, Ashley

“Hi, I’m Hudson,” said the cute little red-haired boy with a winning smile. He readily introduces himself when he meets new people. Hudson turns ten today. He’s open and energetic, plays sports, and is on a swim team

Hudson was born with Down syndrome. He began therapy at three months through Babies Can’t Wait, a program for young children in Georgia. With ADHD, OCD, an immune deficiency, and a severe hearing loss, he has a lot on his plate for a little guy. When we met Hudson, he was between medications to control some of those issues. His doctor had taken him off the medication he’d been taking when he gained fifteen pounds in three weeks.

His speech is amazing, especially with Down syndrome and the degree of hearing loss.

His Occupational Therapist, Jeanna, says “In therapy, we have been working on higher level skills for increased independence such as self-care, responsibility, safety awareness, and emotional and self- regulation. Thus far, the approach has not met Hudson’s needs. . .  Through Therapeutic Riding Hudson would have the opportunity to address those same skills but in an environment that is highly motivation and meaningful to him. . . Therapeutic Riding could help Hudson reach his full potential.”

Happy birthday, Hudson, and happy trails.
