Re: success in putting his own braces on
Hi Kaitlyns mom,
Yes, we have slowed his PT down to every other week this year. We don't do as much home therapy, either--although we still do some every week.
Noah is doing great. Still falls a lot, but is doing much more complicated manuevering around and over things.
The main thing we're working on now is trying to get his left heel down. He'll make progress on it, then find a way around it, back to his old patterns. We've been having him go barefoot more lately, trying to stand still with his heel down--that's helped him a lot. He seems to be improving some in this area, at least for now.
He'll always be in some kind of brace or orthodic on his left foot, because of the degree of pronation he has. St. Louis, on the other hand, would've had him out of braces by now. They have a different philosophy than the PT's here.
All in all, he's made great progress since the surgery and seems much happier overall. How about Kaitlyn--how is she doing?
