hi..i have a daughter who will turn 3 very soon. she was 6 wks premature and is diagnosed with spastic diplegia- moderate. she is on therapy for past one and a half year. At present, she is sitting independently, crawling, stand independently for a minute or so, walks with a walker. She is very verbal and quite intelligent for her age. I have the following questions for any mom who has been through similar stages:
1. she just does not learn to cruise the furniture and cannot understand side stepping.
2. Also, I am worried about the slight crouch I have started seeing in her standing posture when she stands. How should I correct it.
3. while standing holding on with one hand, she does not fix her feet well and after a few minutes, they shift making her lose her balance and twist on the arm. Any suggestions to help fixing the feet.
She wears DAFO's. Any help/ suggestions from other mums/ therapists on board will be sooo appreciated. please respond. my worries are killing me.
