CIMT Therapy for 1 year old Kyra was not a lot. We were still focused on walking and gross motor. Also OT wouldn't make her a cast to constraint her non affected arm since she was still crawling. 
We used long socks and ace bandages and were focused on her just being able to move the arm.

Working those muscles

No OT was ready to make her a cast for her CIMT since they all believed she was very young.
