Climbing Those Steps!


Jax can climb the 37 steps up to the Super Slide at the public pool, slide down the slide, and splash triumphantly in the deep end of the pool.

Jax has hemiparesis, a weakness on one side of his body. Climbing steps or stairs can be a major challenge for someone with hemiparesis. Just imagine needing to balance and shift your weight, without having total awareness and control of one side of your body. This is an amazing accomplishment for Jax!
