Treatment programs for analogous neurological conditions (hemiparesis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, and ataxia) form the basis for the therapy treatment program. When the patient demonstrated safety and independence in her gait, she was given the privilege of walking to the hospital chapel with her mother. There may be associated cerebellar signs (eg, dysarthria, intention tremor, nystagmus). The patient was unable to ambulate without maximal support of two people.
