dear sara, 

I am Mohamed Sami from Egypt, my son was diagnosed with mild right side hempilegia at 5 months he moves his right hand but does not use to hold stuff or reach for them , he recently started pointing his hands towards objects with his right hand but can,t grasp things, he has been having functional nerve stimulation for 3 months and as i said he is reaching for objects now when they are only on his right side, dr's in egypt are not that good and i cant afford to travel abroad ,
