Ellen: Low Tone Pronation
This video follows Ellen, a 2-year-old girl with Down syndrome, during a pediatric physical therapy session. Her physical therapist, Jill Smith, narrates the video and talks about the purpose of various PT exercises shown throughout the session. Includes commentary and tips for working with toddlers. Ellen is wearing a pair of Cascade Dafo's prefabricated UCBL-style shoe inserts, the Fast Fit PollyWog (the PollyWog product has since been updated and replaced by the Fast Fit Chipmunk) to help control her low tone pronation. The shoe inserts provide increased stability and help improve Ellen's gait, especially while walking on uneven surfaces.
