My 22 month old 3 months premature mostly walks on her tippee toes holding on and pushing things only walks with her feet on the ground when you hold one hand and it seems like she doesn't really bend her knees to much when she does My doctor said she needed pt so she has had it for a month and the lady said she couldn't help her anymore she said maybe it's neurological that the brain isn't telling her to walk I need advise and any syggestions

I take issue with the physical therapist! After 1 month she is giving up treatment on your child. No way, call her supervisor or get another PT order from your doctor. Until age two you still factor in the premature age, so she'd be 19 months. Which would be late for walking and since she is showing some toe walking, IMO she still needs PT. Has she had a full battery of assessments thru Early Intervention? If not, you can request one and get her skills and needs checked out from head to toe.
