My daughter is 2 1/2 and has autism. She toe walks all the time. Her OT suggested that we see a orthepedic doctor for splints because her tendons on the back of her legs are really tight and without them to make her walk flat footed she will probably end up needing sugery if left untreated. We have an appointment in May to see the orthepidic doctor, but has any of you ever had to use these for your children? What do they look like? How much are they? I'm just really worried she won't allow them to stay on and I don't want her to need surgery.
