  1. How do you like the kidwalk? Is it easy for Nathan to get it to move? PT is working on getting one for Junior and we need something that can move very easily.

  2. Marce, thank you for the list, it helps me to realize what we could still buy in the US. 🙂

  3. BOY you have a ton of equipment! I’m curious to know which walker is your favorite.

  4. Thank you for posting this wonderful resource.

  5. Have you considered conductive education? http://Www.conductivelearningcenter.org

  7. thanks for sharing, are these equipment generally covered by insurance?

  8. Pamela says

    Yes, thank you for posting this list! You have so much equipment.

    I’m also curious about which walker worked better. I’m interested in the Lite Gait. Wondering what the cost is and how it worked.

    What are the DAFO boot inserts for? I’ve never heard of them before.

    Thank you again for posting this!

  9. Hi! This is very useful. I emailed you about a year ago. My son has the same case as Nathan.
