Weight bearing and posture
This little guy who has cerebral palsy did great today. I'd like to think it was due to all the weight bearing activities. Shown here- he is bearing weight on a vibrating pillow (he is facing backwards). But I think part of this picture of erect posture is that he is wearing a body suit.
He also had better control while performing a ring stack type activity.
