Hi Angelar1021:

I do not live in the mentioned area. However, I was born with ROBPI. My right forearm was rotated for use. I have issues with overhead reaching, but, I rotate my body trunk to assist with movement.

Exercising the limb is crucial. See your doctor, O.T. and P.T. for suggestions. Please give your child a chance of some limb mobility.

Stay positive!
