Shayaan

Dreams of driving a car

Shayaan was born without arms but learned to do almost everything he needed to do on his own--including eat, write with a pencil, and play video games! He's always been an active boy who loves playing soccer with his friends and swimming. As he's grown older, Shayaan has developed other medical conditions that have made it difficult for him to walk. Shayaan's therapists at Grandview are helping his mother look ahead and identify what Shayaan's needs will be in the future. They are also helping to make more opportunities available to him, including getting his first set of prosthetic arms. With the new arms, Shayaan was recently able to drive a golf cart on his own. He can't wait to drive a real car some day!
