Gait Training:

 

We employ many approaches to assist children who are not yet walking.  Our therapists are trained in NDT (neurodevelopmental treatment) which is an approach that is widely used for children with compromised muscle tone, as well as decreased strength.  We also utilize everyday activities that can be easily carried over in the home setting.  When appropriate, we will refer children to physiatry to obtain orthotics, which can be useful in assisting children gain the control required to maintain standing and begin to ambulate.
