Strides for Dareon


Little two-year-old Dareon Reid amazes teachers, therapists and his family quite often with his "can-do" attitude.

Dareon attends the Easter Seals UCP Craven-Cherry Point Child Development Center in Havelock, NC.  Occupational therapists and teachers work with him through the challenges of his diagnosis, Skeletal Dysplasia.  He was born without his radius and ulnar bones in both arms, has a short femur in his left leg, and no femur in his right leg.

This little wonder has displayed great strides through therapy in adaptive skills and independent skills such as self-care and playing.  Teachers at the Center are thrilled that Dareon is feeding himself, using adaptive equipment and playing.  One of his favorite things to do is to read stories and turn the pages in books.
