I give a lot of credit to the ABR method for Charlie’s amazing progress. It’s not, however, the only treatment we do with him. ABR makes Charlie strong, but it doesn’t make him move. To help Charlie learn how to move, we take him to a person who practices Feldenkrais.
- Improved use of his right hand including trying to use it almost every day–the other day he ate half a sandwich wish his right hand.
- Moving his legs independent of one another.
- Taking steps.
- Improved weight shifting with arms, which has led to independent sitting.
I’m sure there are other things that are a combination of all our efforts, but these are things that very specifically seem to be related to movements Charlie does in Feldenkrais.
