We’ve been having some success just by asking Aidan to keep his head up in walking.  But he doesn’t seem to have much muscular endurance as his head drops down again quickly.  Thursday we went on a longer walk, through a different area than the hallway we’ve been working in.  Aidan was engaged in his new surroundings and kept his head up 80% of the time, without any reminders!  Could keeping his head up mainly be a matter of motivation?

Walking taller – things to try:

  • Clamshell
  • Sideways walking & Sideways stepping up
  • Balancing on one leg
  • Holding just left hand in walking
  • Chair squats
  • Glute Bridges
  • Step up / Climb Stairs
