Through Occupational Therapy we have just received Chloe’s walking frame, this will help Chloe start to learn to stand and eventually begin walking. Our OT believed that Chloe probably wouldn’t learn to crawl before walking, due to Chloe’s lack of full head control.
We have been a few times a day starting to get Chloe to try standing up against the settee with either parent supporting Chloe’s head, body and legs, just to help encourage Chloe to start to learn to straighten her legs and enjoy being stode up.
The standing frame has been funded from the Hampshire Equipment Stores for Chloe to use, and has been made especially for Chloe’s measurements. This now brings Chloe’s equipment in the house to a total of 4.
- Indoor chair
- Shower chair
- Walking frame.
Its fair to say our lounge and dining room are a little crowded now with equipment.
