New Physical Therapy Evaluation

Mowing the snow
Allie had a new physical therapy evaluation done last month and we were totally shocked by how much she improved.  

Back in August (when she was 42 months old), she had her initial physical evaluation.  She did the same evaluation last month (at 46 months old).  Check out the score comparisons below! 

Stationary (posture, strength, balance, etc.)
Then: Age equivalent of 33 months (25th percentile)
Now: Age equivalent of 50 months (63rd percentile)

Locomotion (running, jumping, climbing, etc.)
Then: Age equivalent of 33 months (25th percentile)
Now: Age equivalent of 45 months (37th percentile)

There was also an evaluation for "Object Manipulation", including tasks such as throwing and catching.  We didn't get the full results for this but the PT said that she's stayed at about the 25th percentile.  

I've said it before, but I think physical therapy plus gymnastics has been a huge success for her.  She's also more motivated to do two handed things, which helps a lot.  Especially when she gets to eat or throw the end product...
