I need range of motion or leg and ankle stretch tips for a 9 year old girl with Rett Syndrome.?

by admin on January 16, 2010

I work with a little girl who has Rett Syndrome, and her leg muscles are generally very tight and she has problems walking, which is not uncommon for children with this disorder. I’d like to find some stretches that would be beneficial to her, and how to apply these stretches correctly.

I think your best bet is to go on the Rettnet (sign up at www.rettsyndrome.org) where there are hundreds of parents and therapists with great advice.
