I'm pretty sure I've posted about this before. DS has toe-walked for years, but it seems to come and go. I see it almost all of the time now. Maybe it's the excitement of the holidays and him being out of school. His private OT at one time recommended brushing, but his public OT was a little more ambivalent. His dev. pedi is pretty practical, and said it seemed to be a big commitment, and unless everyone was on board, it probably wouldn't be effective. (I.e. his public school would have to brush him regularly) I brought up toe-walking at his IEP eval and everyone, including the OT, said it didn't seem to be a problem. He qualifies for DAPE now, and that specialist is working on getting him to run heel to toe instead of toe to heel.
Should I be doing anything else? We've been turned down for PT in the past, perhaps we'd qualify now? His doctor checks his feet/tendons every year and says they aren't tight, and that the toe-walking is sensory and thus not covered by OT (at least, that's how I understood him).
