No video, but I’ll try and get some this week.  On Saturday, Dave sat with Ava and she descended, step by step each of the 14 stairs it takes to get from upstairs to downstairs.  He showed her down, sideways to stop yourself on each riser, and then do it again each time praising her: Good girl Ava!

Today, I was going to sit with her on each step as she descended.  I didn’t need to.  As soon as she took up her courage she went and didn’t stop.  Praises everywhere! Good girl Ava.

Some Hints
I think it takes a while for the videos to load... they're HD format and are pretty big files. If you click on the arrow and then immediately click the pause button. This allows the video to load. Once there is more grey line than black line, you should be able to press the play button. Enjoy.
