Last night I watched Payton walk down our stairs holding on to the handrail. She always scoots down on her bottom, has us carry her, or has to hold someone's hand. I couldn't believe it! I know it's all visual-spatial (we actually got tickled at her when we pushed her in the swing on the new swing set because a wood panel was sticking out wayyyyy above her head and she kept yelling that she didn't want to hit her head - it wasn't even close to her....another sign of the visual spatial deficiencies that affect most ws kiddos), but seeing her walk down the stairs by herself made me see that she will work thru the deficiency at her own pace - I know not all of them, but some of them.
After I watched her so delicately hit each step and slowly make it down the stairs and turn the corner, I ran down after her to go find Bob and tell him what she'd just done. YAY Payton :)
