CIMT--pics and videos! (Finally!)

We haven't been doing any form of casting lately. Leah got out of two casts and then we recasted, cut it off and made it removable. I am having a REALLY hard time with the removable cast because it is really hard to get on! Our OT has had it in her office since Monday, working on making it easier to put on and we will get it next week. I'm still hoping that in the next 2 weeks we will be recasting fully. I see amazing progress with Leah's overall use of lefty. Here are some pictures...we have had to start strapping, my very mobile little girl, down! :) She loves to move around so her booster seat makes a perfect little seat for her to play in! :) These pictures are from about 2 weeks ago, when she was fully casted. In the car, right after getting the cast on...

Hi, Amanda, I'm giving a one-day course for other therapists in early December. I'd like to show this video of Leah - would you give me permission? I will not identify her by name or your blog. I am in Texas. I will check-back here, or you can email me. Thanks, Barbara

Barbara,
You can definitly show this video, although I don't think it's the greatest! I'll have more videos up when we re-cast, but again you are more then welcome to it. :)Amanda

Hey! I am trying to get some help from moms who have been at this for a while. My son was just diagnosed with CP and I was wondering if you could help answer some questions for me? Thanks! acchadwick1@yahoo.com
