For thirty minutes a day at Now I Can Parker has been practicing his static standing. Static standing requires him to remain still in a stationary position. And when I say stationary I mean like a statue. They have him latched to this stander with weights down by his feet to make sure he is posture perfect.
I’m told a static stander improves circulation to the internal organs and heightens the sense of balance. Time in the static stander also helps with Parker’s floppy joints.
It’s supposed to help Parker understand where his body is in space.
It’s humbling to know that this Hero of mine trusts me during through every single decision I make for him……even the uncomfortable ones.
How does Parker feel about the daily 30 in the static stander. Well, maybe you should tell me.
What therapies does your kid hate, but you put them through it anyway? How does it make you feel as a parent?
