Isaac's worn a DAFO on his right leg since he was two and we found out he needed one. We've named it after whatever design pattern he's chosen: first was a rocket, then trucks, currently dinosaurs. He's seen no other kids that wear one, other than at his PT sessions. Today I volunteered in what will probably be his new classroom here in SF. I was drawn to one little guy who had a lot of personality and a bit of trouble sitting still. Nice kid, smart kid. Only after being there for an hour did I notice he had two! rocket/truck/dino shoes. How serendipitous is that action? Isaac may not even care, or even be friends with this kid, but at least he'll know he's not the only kid in school that's got one.
