Abstract
Taylor and Tyler are twin brothers and best friends. But the twins are different in one significant way: Taylor has cerebral palsy, while Tyler does not. Through Taylor's eyes we see how much effort he must expend to strengthen his legs, which are weak. He explains how valuable his new wheelchair is because it helps him maneuver more easily and do the things he want to do, like go to school and play basketball with his brother Tyler.

This book is designed for parents, therapists, and other caregivers to help young children with gross motor delays learn and practice motor skills outside of therapy sessions. Written by an experienced physical therapist who is also the mother of a child with cerebral palsy, this comprehensive guide examines the physical characteristics of cerebral palsy and similar conditions - muscle tightness and weakness, increased or decreased flexibility, abnormal reflexes, impaired sensory perception- that affect a child's ability to sit, crawl, stand, and walk.
Includes dozens of exercises with accompanying photos that parents may incorporate into daily routines at home with the guidance and support of their child's physical therapist.
Exercises address: head control, protective reactions, proper positioning, independent sitting with and without arm support, transitional movements, daily stretching, improving muscle strength and coordination, balance training, gait training.
