Meghan shared in her stories: “Today he finally let me put this on him. I think he likes it. It feels like a hug to him.”
She explained how the suit worked: “By adding stimuli (such as this suit) his neuro connections don’t have to work as hard to figure out where his body is and what it’s doing (that’s the role of the suit to provide that feedback) and instead focus on other typical development tasks such as throwing a ball, coloring or even paying attention (like to this movie.”
Hart has PVL, which primarily affects motor skills.

The toddler struggles with balance and proprioception or knowing where his body is in space, which often causes him to trip and fall.
Because of PVL, Hart also has issues with his speech and language.
Meghan relayed: “His tongue has difficulty making the proper movements to communicate the words his brain already knows…and his attitude (he screams out of frustration very, very often and also hits and bites).”

In May Meghan updated how Hart was progressing with his PVL amid the pandemic.
Hart used to get speech therapy, physical therapy and occupational therapy multiple times each week, and the RHOC star struggled trying to “takeover these therapies.”
Unable to keep her son’s “focus” while caring for her other kids has been leaving Meghan feeling “guilty all the time.”

Meghan admitted she’s already seen Hart’s progress plateau in therapy[/caption]
She’d already seen Hart’s progress plateau in therapy prior to the quarantine leading her to feel “very alone,” and not being able to help much now is only making her feel worse.
Meghan wrote: “Even special needs mamas don’t talk about these plateaus… so I was completely blindsided by this demoralizing development.
“But that demoralization was months ago. February. Now we are in May. And Hart has regressed.
“That’s right, Hart’s current status is below the level of that depressing plateau I just told you about. His balance is much worse than it was at the end of 2019.”
