One thing that has really helped my hand and finger coordination is
Feldenkrais therapy. I have not talked about it recently because the old
timers here know what I say about it, but Wansa might not know. I have had
Feldenkrais method bodywork since I was 24. And despite what a lot of
people think, it is possible for a person with cp to get better
coordination even if one is an adult. It is a gentle touch therapy and it
has helped my hands and feet enormously. my walking is a lot smoother too,
and the past year my speech has improved by many many leaps and bounds.
