Teaching Walking: Pediatric Physical Therapy for Babies #40

This video instructs families with a baby with physical challenges how to work with their baby. My name is Amy Sturkey, PT. I am a pediatric physical therapist in the US. I started this project hoping to give some ideas to families who want to help their baby with Microcephaly due to the Zika virus, but these videos would help a wide variety of families who have a baby with a developmental challenge. This video teaches a simple technique in how to work on walking. This is idea is only appropriate for a child who is showing supported standing and stepping skills. It is not appropriate to try this technique with a child who is much weaker or has significant other concerns. I hope you find this idea useful and simple to follow through. My website is www.pediatricPTexercises.com. My Facebook page is Pediatric Physical Therapy Exercises. My informational books, "A is for Autism," "C is for Cerebral Palsy," "D is for Down Syndrome," "Pediatric Physical Therapy Strengthening Exercises for the Hips" and "Pediatric Physical Therapy Strengthening Exercises for the Knees" are available on Amazon. "A is for ADHD" should be available shortly. Do not hesitate to contact me at amysturkey@gmail.com with questions, concerns or favorable reviews! Please note I am unable to provide treatment recommendations for a child I have not personally evaluated. I am so honored to have people from all over the world watch my videos.
