Hi, my name is LyndseyF! 3 year old daughter with quad cerebral palsy

LyndseyFLyndseyF Member Posts: 1 Listener
My daughter was diagnosed with a quadriplegic cerebral palsy just under a year ago. She's just started school nursery and is doing fantastic. She has a Kaye walker to get around and tries to be very independent. I came on here to see if anyone has any further ideas apart from the general physio and OT ideas to try and get her taking her first steps independently. Are there any treatments anyone has tried out that have seemed to have given their child that extra push? 

Thanks in advance
