Madison had her first day of training today with Mike & Jenn from Walk This Way. They are in Toronto for two weeks working with 8 SDR participants out of Variety Village. She will work with them for 2 hours a day and we can’t wait to share that with everyone!
More about Walk This Way:
“Walk This Way therapy courses specialise in working with children, teenagers and adults that are both post op SDR and pre op SDR. We work with other types of Cerebral Palsy but we are the only SDR specific training centre in the UK & the USA where we have been working with SDR related children for 5 years. During this time we have built up an international client list of over 400 clients that myself and my team members work with. Our techniques are focused, specific and designed to strengthen and condition the body to be able to move more freely and with more control. We work very closely with Dr Park and Deanna Walters at St Louis Children’s Hospital in the USA. After visiting the Children’s Hospital and working alongside their therapists it was encouraging to see just how similar our approach and training methods are.
We concentrate on strengthening the muscle weakness and then teach the body how to move better by focusing on biomechanics and movement based training . We are very focused on MOVEMENT and increasing functional Gain.”
Madison did an amazing job and worked hard – she was held accountable and made to listen and be attentive and was an active participant in the whole session. They made it fun and she was super engaged. It was exciting to see the quality of her walking develop over the session with only running shoes on.
