        • Ashley Developmentary part 3 of 6

          from Scott Malone / Added

          Ashley who was born in 1998 and was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. This is part 3 of a 6 part series demonstrating the methods needed in developing Ashley or any child with disabilities to be given them the ABILITY of a life of unrestricted freedom. This Part 3 shows a series of video clips from 1999-2007 showing you the progression of movement. This is a continuation of disability to ability . This video will then lead you into part 4 coming next which shows you how Ashley continues to go from disability to ability. The upcoming part 4 will be a video of a full movement training workout. I hope that you are starting to see the progressions in Ashley's strength, movements and communications and with the proper FREQUENCY(days per week),DURATION( length of session), and TIME (length of program) the world of freedom becomes possible. Everyone on this earth needs to prioritize those 3 things- frequency, duration, and time in order to succeed in anything. When you prioritize frequency,duration, and time for Ashley and kids with disabilities, those so called disabilities - disappear and ABILITY appears.
