January 2, 2019 first steps wearing his cane
This is the first time, Patti Shannon, O&M specialist, has included the wearable Toddler Cane in her lesson with Marshall. In the video, she explores how to best support Marshall (also without his gait trainer). He walks with hands up in high guard, until the cane contacts the mat, the path information appears to cause a reaction; both hands move very fast and almost clap with excitement and anticipation. Marshall repeats the word "circle" several times and then he says, "we're going to do circle--". video ends.
