I tried TheraTogs on another kid today, one with MAJOR (what I thought) sensory issues. Lots of poor control of postural muscles too… walks stiffly… can’t maintain half-kneel without max assist… and falls about 3 times an hour. I worked with the little guy for 2 hours today, one of which was in the TheraTogs.
Amazing. Simply amazing. [He now shows] low-guard ambulation with trunk rotation and arm swing, walked up and down curbs without any stumble, and stooped and recovered 30 times without falling over. Got him inside and during circle time, he half-kneeled for me for 10 minutes on each knee along with the other kids — only this time with contact-guard to minimum assist. I’m going to submit to have Medicaid buy him a pair for take-home use.
