Re: CP and ballet training
I couldn't have done ballet because I never had the balance for it (can't stand in one spot without crutches) but I did horseback riding from the age of 7 and was much better for it. They had us do exercises on the horses (touching toes, moving side to side ect...)
The balance issue came up again when I was ready to start jumping a bit.. (high school by that point) so I left, but I did enjoy it. There was a program in my area that was subsidized.
IMO PT's are overrated ..lol They are forever "by the book" I never found anything too "real life" about them, but that's just me..lol A resource is a resource, BUT there are MANY resources out there. You're the Mom, I guarantee, YOU are your son's best resource.
