Re: cerebral palsy

Is he in a wheelchair or is he still ambulatory? My daughter did not have good trunk control when she was younger and we used a "butterfly" harness and a lap tray on her wheelchair. She gained some stability at she grew older. If he is not in a wheelchair...YEA! but you should talk to his physical therapist.

Re: cerebral palsy

he is in a chair and we are using a harness,but he seems to be leaning into it no matter were I position it.he seems to have lost so much since his surgery last year.have started hydro with him again and asked for extra phsyio,so will see how that goes.he is waiting on a new chair so that might help too.sometimes you seem to go backwards instead of forwards dont you?thanks for your reply though .x

Re: cerebral palsy

my son is 24 and he only walked for a short while. he can stand and walk with a walker yet he seems to rather crawl. belive me it is heart breaking to watch yet he is happy and that is what is important.
