Few CIMT ideas in younger kids

I used ace bandage and covered her right unaffected hand with it, making sure its in a fist, and then I covered the ace bandage with a long sock.

I would just restrict the “good” “unaffected “ whichever you prefer hand and let her use lefty. I used a kitchen timer, i used to set it up for half hr and when it beeps, she can take the Constraint out. Slowly I increased the time to 4-5 hrs.

It wasn’t easy, but it was so helpful. I can definitely see more improvement and a lot of tolerance for CIMT once the cast arrived.

Young brain is very elastic and can make new neurons faster.

Start them young I say!
