Client Spotlight: Ava Spier
Ava is nine years old and has vision and hearing loss. This has lead to motor, speech and cognitive delays. However with your help the Plus One Foundation has been able to provide Ava with a grant to participate in hippotherapy - therapeutic horseback riding. This is an activity that builds new neural pathways, in addition to being something that Ava really enjoys. Ava gets to spend a couple hours a week working on skills that will help her make friends and perform everyday activities, all while spending time with horses - one of her favorite animals! Thank you for your support. It helps us help people like Ava every day!

Have you heard of our Wave Program?!
At Plus One we are always trying to make ripples in the Neurological community. Plus One means volunteering for 1 event, telling 1 person about our organization, helping 1 person fill out their grant application, or donating 1 more dollar. All of these actions may seem small, but they impact the lives of children and adults with neurological disorders in very meaningful ways. Now you can turn your ripple into a wave. Become a monthly donor and join our Wave Program.
Give monthly to inspire hope and bring joy to children and adults with neurological disorders. Neurological disorders affect up to one billion people worldwide. They affect people in all countries - irrespective of age, sex, education or income.

“Exercise at the pool helps with muscle pain associated with Parkinson’s Disease. In addition I get social time and support that helps me mentally cope. The muscle strengthening and flexibility/coordination are necessary in maintaining a degree of independence that I would not have without it. The Mermaid Grant helps me keep doing this as long as possible.” - Carly
"The type of Movement Therapy I receive from Anastasia is very helpful for my balance and improving my scoliosis. I am only able to afford $80/month, so I am not able to see Anastasia very often. The best improvement has been shown to occur when I receive two treatments per week. I had rotational osteotomy surgery on my left leg last November (my leg was cut in two places and straightened) and this movement therapy is helping me learn how to walk in a new way, with my feet straight, and my shoulders back.
I don't feel food on my face and have other sensory issues that are also being addressed and improved. With athetoid cerebral palsy, falling is a common occurrence. Therefore, working on my balance keeps me upright and I fall less. Thank you for approving my grant application." - Marie
