Here is Thomas sideways walking, or ‘cruising’ along his table, to get to his favourite toy! He has worked so hard on this skill that now he is learning to bridge a gap, from one surface to the next! His physiotherapist knows just where to support him when practising this skill! Go Thomas! Cruising and bridging gaps gives infants that confidence boost of letting go with one hand, in a subtle and distracting way! When Thomas has mastered this skill, he will be ready to start standing and walking with one hand held.
