The mda website is a great place for information. My grandson began to walk different sort of waddle and he was getting tired alot not wanting to walk. Extremely large calves are also a sign. Best thing is to have a complete examine by a nuerologist.

In my cousin's case, the first really tell-tale sign was shortening in his calf muscles that caused him to walk on his toes, which is what led to his diagnosis at 20 mos old.
