Woodbury Family Achievement Center gets results for kids with disabilities (twincities.com)
Wyatt Hauser ate applesauce with a spoon, grabbed pegs from a pegboard and walked down a carpeted hallway one day last week at Family Achievement Center in Woodbury.
For 11-year-old Wyatt, those activities are anything but routine. They’re therapeutic exercises that constitute small miracles.
Wyatt has a rare form of debilitating epilepsy that can cause hundreds of seizures a day. Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome usually strikes children between 3 and 5 years of age, beginning with bouts of staring and gradually progressing to repeated seizures that eventually become so disruptive that many children fail to develop normally. Wyatt, who began experiencing seizures when he was 7 months old, is nonverbal and regularly uses a wheelchair.
