Well, we had an appointment Monday with Lydia’s physical therapist. I fully expected for her to be outfitted for braces since that’s what we were told would happen. But, the physical therapist said that she had been thinking about Lydia and decided that she’d rather us try one more thing before we put her in the braces. She wants us to buy shoes that squeak. She feels that if Lydia has that auditory reminder, then she’ll start to walk correctly. The shoes only squeak if you walk heel to toe. So, we’re going to buy the shoes, they’re quite cute, and see what happens!
***If you’ve landed on my blog from searching the ‘net for info on tip toe walking or serial casting or AFO braces, hello. This particular post here is one in a number I wrote about my daughter’s tip toe walking. I encourage you to start with this post instead. It encapsulates our journey more succinctly.***
