CSUS therapist aim for special needs children: Have treadmill, will walk
Sacramento Bee

Michael Cimino, just 2 1/2 years old, put one step forward on a tot-sized treadmill and squealed with joy.

Cimino, who has cerebral palsy, normally finds walking a challenge. But on the treadmill, he repeatedly aimed his foot at the hand puppet his mother slid in front of him. The monkey-faced puppet darted away before his foot landed, bringing another pair of steps, another shriek of excitement, another measure of progress.
