Treating the Reluctant Ambulator: Facilitating the Components of Gait, Part 2
This DVD emphasizes working toward independent gait in patients that have severe developmental delays secondary to syndromes and severe mental impairment. This DVD emphasizes the need to integrate the sensory motor aspects of walking along with the gross motor control. The therapist encourages these patients to function outside of their fixed patterns of control and move higher against gravity. The DVD includes therapy sessions on two different patients. One of the demonstrations is a co-therapy session with OT and PT. The newest footage covers what each of these children looked like in various therapy sessions at other ages. It is hoped that this additional footage will further inform the viewer about how to treat children who have these types of motor control. These DVDs can be valuable tools for all therapists working to facilitate the building blocks of control needed to achieve independent gait in their patients.
