MJ had a stroke in her mother’s womb during the last few weeks of her mother’s pregnancy. When MJ was born, she did not have a gag, suck or swallow reflex and as a result was given a feeding tube. The stroke also left MJ with left-side weakness.
Earlier this month, some of the children and families we serve through our Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) program gathered together to celebrate a big milestone: graduation! Throughout each year, The Warren Center hosts graduation ceremonies to celebrate the children that have graduated from our ECI program. Children have the opportunity to wear a cap and gown and go across the stage to receive a special certificate. Families are also able to have their photo taken.
