Hi Stacy,

I assume you have observed that Adison is getting hurt more often 
than other kids.  I'm wondering if anyone has figured out WHY she is 
getting hurt.  Is she tripping over things?  Does she have any motor 
difficulties?  Is she using a cane?  Does she use it well?  If you 
can figure out the "why," then you'll be better able to figure out a remedy.

Best wishes,

Carol Castellano, President
