    Please keep me notified if this course will be offered in Missouri or Arkansas; I’m limited in ability to travel further than these states, but am very interested in learning more about treatment of toe walking!

    • Mandy says:

      Hi Holly, this course is not scheduled to come to your area this year. But I will pass your request to our course coordinator for future dates.
      Thank you for your comment

    Is there any dates for this course for 2016?

  4. I am a Canadian OT and am wondering if you will come to Canada or northern US, perhaps northern New York state? Looking forward to hearing from you. 🙂 Heather

    Hello, do you have an online course available?

    • Mandy Washington says:

      Hi Zinnia, we are just looking into offering some parts of this toe walking course in an online version. It is very early in the planning stages and we will not have further details until later in the fall. SO watch his space 🙂 Please feel free to contact us again in October to find out where we are in production.
      Thank you for contacting us

  6. Deena Recker says:

    This is a very interesting topic to people in my field of orientation and mobility. Many of our blind and visually impaired students demonstrate toe walking. Does this information also apply to our field? Thanks.

    • Mandy Washington says:

      Hi Deena, I did discuss this with Liesa, and it does does not apply to the visually impaired.
      Thank you for contacting us.
      Mandy
