First Dyslexia, then Autism and now Progeria........ 'PAA' a must watch

This weekend we watched PAA with Navya. It's a story of a special child AURO, who has Progeria. Progeria is a genetic condition in which the child ages very rapidly, so at the age of 12 Auro's mind is like any other 12 yr old but he has aged a lot, he looks like a 80 yr old man. He is intellegent, naughty just like any other child of his age.  The movie is not about Progeria, it's about a father-son relationship. Not even once you will see that his friends, schoolmates and relatives are feeling awkward with Auro.All the people around Auro accept him as he is and value him a lot.

I could actually relate to Vidya (Auro's mother), the scenes where she comes to know 'Auro has Progeria', she breaks down, reads a lot on internet/books and makes herself strong, so strong that people's comments hardly matter to her.

Well I am bad at writing a review; I would suggest you go and watch the movie. For AURO. For Amitabh Bachhan (he himself is 70 and played a 12 yr old).

I am sure you will cherish the experience.

First 'Taare Zameen Per', then 'Aap ki antra' and now 'PAA', are we changing? Now that these characters (with dyslexia, autism, Progeria) have become popular, our kids will be accepted in our society/school with lesser apprehension and they will get the love and care they deserve. I really hope so!

I look forward to watch 'My Name is Khan' starring Shahrukh Khan. He plays a character of an autistic Adult.

Navya Loves Jammin :)

Look at that face, she is not scared of those rides and enjoys a lot. Infact she cries when we head back to home.
I feel so proud when kids double of her age and size cries when their enthu parents make them sit in those fancy rides and my little one waves hi, shakes her head like crazy. (gosh such a long sentence :) )
Oh she is so sweet!
Enjoy the pics.

A long due update and lots of Photos

Hi All,

I apologies for not posting. But I am back now and hope will post more frequently now.

Let me mention here, what I couldn't post in past 2 and 1/2 months.

To begin with we had Navya's One year check up and assessment. Her Thyroid and Spine X ray have come normal. Vision and Bera are still due, I think we dont have any issues there, but still will get it done in coming few days.

Navya cooperated very well during her assessment. We go to 'Ummed' to see the developmental Pediatrician. Her assessment scores at the age of one year were CAT: 9.3 months, CLAMS 8.5 months
Overall they thought she behaved like a 9.5 months old baby.
As per my understanding CAT score tells about her behavior and CLAMS about speech.
And the DQ (Developmental Quotient) was 74; which is average for any kid.

We have been advised to play with more cause and effect toys, have animated talk with her and start Speech Therapy. We had two speech therapy sessions (third one is in next week itself, gosh the speech therapy scares me :( will write about that in some other post). Also, we try to take 3 PT sessions a week (very rarely we can make it to 3rd one). Oh and I forgot to mention Navya is coming up to sit on her now :). Yeah, she has mastered it now. Currently we are working on her Crawling. Quite a lot of hard work for my little girl, while kneeling she screams like Steffy Graph (aaaa, aeeeeeeee ingggggg).

And now the teething part; from last 6 months or so we were waiting to see that tiny little white spot. Surprise surprise, Navya is finally teething. And guess what ? Navya's first tooth is not the regular 'First Molar'... naah.........not even the Second Molar... yes, it's the Cannian Tooth.. he he ha ha.. Someone just told me she will look like Dracula. Can you image a kid with all four molar teeth (and only molar teeth) ?

There are some more updates to come, till then Enjoy My Cute Little Navya's photographs ( these are not the latest though)
