"Before our little girl first started the pelvic floor program at Altru, we felt alone in advocating for her with her bathroom challenges. She had joined our family less than two years ago and came to us with a traumatic history. We were grateful that her pediatrician agreed that her needs required professional interventions and suggested this program. Because of her past, which includes extensive medical care, she gets very anxious in clinical settings. However, her therapists do such an amazing job making her feel at ease and having a great time. She now looks forward to her therapy sessions! It’s taken time, hard work on the part of our little girl, and the dedication and dynamic talents of the Altru team, but our girl is making great strides. Having her physical therapist and occupational therapists as part of this healing journey has helped to make us feel supported in advocating for our child and I know this teamwork will be a big part of the key to her overcoming some of the challenges she’s working so hard to overcome."
