Idiopathic toe walking (ITW) causes significant physical impairment that affects a child’s occupational engagement. This research postulates a quasi-experimental study examining the responsiveness of a child with ITW using the Toe Tamer® protocol for 6 weeks during the COVID-19 pandemic. This research is relevant to the practice of OT by providing an individualized, accessible, cost-effective solution to ameliorate the effects of ITW in children.
