My son is 2.5 years old and he is diagnosed with Developmental Delays caused by a Cerebral Atrophy. He is currently undergoing PT and some OT at his school. We have a major issue with his arms! He likes to keep them up to his side (imagine if you tell someone STICK EM UP!) and he also still fists quite a bit.
Johnathan's delays are global but he is babling and always happy and smiling , he is coming along well. He is not walking yet but he can stand with support.
I need some advice on activities I can do to help with the hands. His therapist gave us splints but he hates them!! I stretch his hands every night and as soon as the pressure from the stretching is applied, he immediately relaxes them for a while and then , STICK EM UP!! once again. I am looking at wrist weights as an option. I would like some guidance/help!! Thanks
