The Backstory of Child Inspired:
Every journey has a unique start. This was ours…
During the Winter of 2014, Christina’s active, smiley 5 year old son Andrew became ill with a childhood virus. His illness quickly and unexpectedly worsened, and led to life-threatening respiratory failure that required an emergency medivac flight from their local hospital to Nemours A.I. Dupont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, Delaware. Upon further testing at Nemours, Christina’s family learned that Andrew had developed pneumonia in both lungs and H1N1 flu. He required advanced life support for several days until his medical condition could be stabilized.
Drawing on her experience as an Occupational Therapist working with children and adults with disabilities, and her intense desire to communicate to Andrew that he was improving and would get home, Christina called a close friend and asked her to make Andrew a “visual road map”. It helped to engage Andrew with his medical team in child- and family-centered communication regarding his progress.
Andrew’s visual road map eventually led to the establishment of a non-profit organization, Get Well Map Foundation, and since then Child Inspired Therapy has been providing pediatric therapy services to children and families in and around Southern Delaware. CHILD INSPIRED, therefore, was literally inspired by a child. Inspired by the deeply personal experience of Andrew’s hospitalization, and the desire to ease the anxiety and overwhelm often experienced by other children and families during medical and life challenges.
Based in Milton, DE our team of clinicians are here to serve your family’s needs locally and beyond via home-based, outpatient therapy, telehealth services, and community wellness and family education workshops.
