This is a video of Jackson at the Perlman Center. He’s in a harness attached to a track in the ceiling. Many of the children at the Perlman Center are not able to walk (yet). So, to get them to bear weight on their legs and strengthen their leg muscles, the kids can get into the harness. It also keeps them upright, which is great, especially for Jackson, who cannot sit up on his own yet.
Why is the attached video so great? Well, not only is he standing, but he’s hitting the switch (I.e. The big red button) with his foot!!! This is huge! I almost started crying when I saw him look at the switch and press the button with his foot so it would make noise. We’re so proud of him and we love the Perlman Center.
