“Dr. Shoval is so good at her job,” shared Diana. “She has truly helped us learn how to cater to our son so he can live a good life.”
In addition to seeing a pediatric physiatrist, Eduardo also visits the Rehabilitation Technology Department at Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside for all of his adaptive equipment needs both inside and outside of their home. There, physical therapists evaluate Eduardo and assist his family to select equipment that best meets their family’s needs.
“Eduardo is always on the go and always wants to be involved in what we’re doing,” his mom added. “If I’m going for a walk, he wants to follow. If I’m grocery shopping, he’s right behind me picking fruit.”
Having the right type of adaptive equipment was vital in allowing Eduardo to reach his full potential.
When Diana thinks about the first time physicians told her that her son couldn’t live a normal life, it nearly brings her to tears. She says that today, her son inspires her and those around her to view no obstacle as too large. She says, “With love, you can do anything.”
