Jessica was 10 months old when FECTS therapy was initiated. She was born at 27 weeks gestation weighing 2.2 lbs. Jessica was addicted to cocaine with diagnoses of ventricular septal defect, VP shunt, anemia, periventricular leukomalacia, hydrocephalus, and bilateral retinopathy. Jessica lives with her grandmother, who had been told that Jessica would never walk, talk or develop mentally beyond a 2 year old. Jessica is a happy, yet strong willed child. She was content to play with any toy that was close by, using the least amount of movement to obtain other toys. Jessica refused to lie on her stomach and required physical assistance to maintain a crawling position. She was a tiny, yet mighty little girl that knew what she liked and didn't like!
