Boston had an AMAZING OT session at Hopebridge today. We started the session by walking to the park for some time in the swings.
We all know Boston LOVES to swing!! What you might not know is when he swings – the sensory input he receives is amazing, and he works so much harder the remainder of the session after some swing time :)
He rode in the wagon to and from the park – I wish I had more photos of this – he laid on his tummy, he got up in four point, he crouched, all sorts of great stuff, all in a MOVING wagon!
Boston did really well crawling through the tunnel.
Although, halfway through, I think he was debating on staying in!
I have to say, I thought Liz was crazy when she said they were going to work with shaving cream, typically Boston FREAKS out when he gets his hands dirty, so you can imagine my surprise when he did so well playing today!It took a little hand over hand by Liz but then he actually initiated some play!
He also wore quite a bit of it too – but this was HUGE!
I did get some video – I will have to post that too.
After we got Boston (and Liz) cleaned up it was back to work. The ipad is typically a pretty good motivator for Boston and today was no exception, he worked so hard!
love this kid.
He started getting a little tired, but still worked hard!
I look forward to all the progress in our future with the great staff at HopeBridge. OT started last week, Speech starts next – all while we wait to get everything figured out with insurance for ABA therapy.
