Water Table Fun with the Educube Chair

Water Table Fun with the Educube Chair

Nimbo Walker

Nimbo Walker

Today was Joaquin’s first time using the Nimbo Walker which is kinda similar to his gait trainer but doesn’t have the support system that his gait trainer comes with. He has to hold on at the side the entire time and keep himself up on […]
