“All it takes is some practice.” Jarvis, Physical Therapy Patient
Jarvis has been working with Salah Ahmed for about four years now. During their physical therapy sessions, they work on exercises that strengthen and build muscles in Jarvis’ legs. While still in his chair, Ahmed flexes Jarvis’ legs. Then, Jarvis grasps onto the walker and quickly steadies his balance before he starts pacing down the hallway. Whether he’s in his chair or not, there seems to be nothing that slows down Jarvis. “All it takes is some practice,” said Jarvis, who is frequently out in his Brooklyn neighborhood shopping and running errands. “It’s been a pleasure working with Jarvis. Nothing gets in his way,” added Ahmed. Wellness’ Article 16 clinic can now accommodate up to 19,000 patient visits a year. The HeartShare Article 16 Clinic offers speech, occupational and physical therapies, counseling, and evaluations to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
