Thank you for explaining it to me. I'm glad that it's helping as I had never heard of it before. Sounds like something that might of helped mine many years ago.
Just a FYI Matt was a reall bad toe walker but by the time he got to high school he had totally quit. He also doesn't hand flap in public now as he does have control over it. But at home he still does it if he gets excited.
