Age 8. Spastic Diplegia
Kate's mother read Dr. Karen Pape's book, The Boy Who Could Run But Not Walk and she knew right away that her daughter would be able to improve his function.
Kate had Selective Dorsal Rziotomy 3 years ago.
The goal for the 3-day intensive was to further improve Kate's gait and balance
We worked extensively with EMG Biofeedback to teach Kate to activate her muscles. With better muscle activation, Kate was able to improve her gait. She went home with a WalkAide FES gait device on loan for 3 months.
Kate and her mother talk about what Kate learned in her Step by Step Intensive.
