Checklist_GirlHelp Us Plan 2017 Courses for YOU!

We’re putting together our course offerings for 2017 (and beyond), and we could use your input.

Can you take 5 minutes for a brief 8-question survey? (Sure you can!) We would appreciate it greatly – there’s nothing worse than offering training courses that you don’t want or need to take… or not knowing what courses would be helpful to you.

Here’s your chance to help us offer you training that matters to your practice and your career. Let us know what you think!

An Open Letter to Caretakers and Therapists for Children with Diplegic CP

BCusick_OutsideProgressive GaitWays president and founder Beverly (Billi) Cusick writes:

“I’ve seen hundreds of families of children with diplegia, in consultation sessions in which I routinely undertake an orthopedic assessment and evaluate postural control, movement strategies, and existing orthoses. Common denominators have emerged that appear to operate to contribute to common problems of contracture development and recurrence, and to diminishing movement skills so often seen with advancing age in children with diplegia.

“I’ve composed the attached letter for caretakers and therapists of children with diplegia to bring them together in their understanding of the sources of many common musculoskeletal problems, and of the fundamental skills and strategies that are needed for effective remediation.”

Clinicians are welcome to download and share this letter with their colleagues, clients, and prescribing physicians.
