A collection of Peter Walker's videos. Collected over time Peter has selected several informative videos for you to see.
Max - Diagnosed Moderate Cerebral Palsy Spastic Hypotonic
At 14 and a half months Max was unable to sit. His hands, arms and legs were bent and stiff and when held standing his knees turned inwards, his legs buckled and his feet distorted. He had a rounded back and very moderate head control.
Max is now nearly three years of age and for the past 18 months Nina and Bert, Max’s parents, have been working with Peter Walker to help Max become more flexible and to try to help him back into a more normal pattern of development.
Max can now lay comfortably on his tummy, lifting his head with his arms extended. He can sit independently in the first sitting position, and can sit independently in the second. Max has good head control and is now learning to stand upright in a normal fashion.
Max can now sit comfortably and independently in both sitting positions (tailor pose and between his feet) he claps with open hands and is beginning to use his hands well. He has started to go from sitting between his feet to laying forward on his tummy, and from his tummy to back sitting between his feet.
Max can crawl well and roll and can go from sitting to standing with support without 'scissoring' (crossing his legs and feet).
We are now working to get Max to take his first steps without scissoring.
So far this has been an amazing journey and Max has showed us so many things which we hope to be able to pass on to parents with children like Max.
Below you will find clips on Max’s progress. You are welcome to follow his development by viewing these video clips and also get involved with Peter in the Blog.
These clips will be updated shortly with cuts from a new documentary film 'Max's Story' and a DVD showing his progress from birth to now.
