(author)Whinnery, Keith W. (author) Located In Teaching Exceptional Children Volume 34 Issue 3 Start Page 44 End Page 50 Date 2002 Abstract Breanna is a 4-year-old girl who loves playing outside. Today she and her mom, Trellis, are taking a walk to feed the dogs, chase the chickens, and pick flowers. Though this might seem like a fairly common scenario for a parent and young child, it is quite extraordinary for Breanna and Trellis. Breanna contracted meningitis and encephalitis at 3½ weeks of age, resulting in cerebral palsy with a mixture of high and low muscle tone, limited strength for standing or sitting upright, and difficulty holding her head upright. Since that time, life for Breanna and her family has consisted of numerous doctors’ appointments, regular therapy sessions at a child development center, and constant strengthening and stretching exercises at home. This article presents an interview with Trellis, Breanna’s mother, who is using a new mobility curriculum with her daughter. The interview provides a glimpse into Trellis’s concerns and expectations for Breanna’s future independence, as well as her feelings about the use of the curriculum. The article also provides an overview of the curriculum and discusses Breanna’s mobility progress.
