I got a note home from the OT at Gabe's school. She gave him a wiggle pad to try. If it works for him then they are going to order him one. She also gave him a stretch band to use before circle time. One that will help him get some sensory input. She showed the teachers some deep pressure things....but I don't know if he will let them touch him. He gets funny about people touching him. It's okay if I do...but other people are not allowed. And even with me he only wants those big hugs on his terms.
Keeping my fingers crossed that the sensory stuff will start to help at circle.
Next week I am supposed to be having the meeting with the sped ed and reg ed teacher. Hopefully they won't cancel this one like the one last week.
Hope everyone is having a good week.
Oh and I have really happy news. The AAC team at AI duPont Children's hospital wants to evaluate Gabe's speech/language development and assess him for an aac device. We already use the itouch as an aac device, but it would be nice to have a better functioning one. I can't wait to see what they say about his speech/language. And this is the perfect time to do this...because he starts kindy in the fall....this eval will give some good info about his language development before kindy even starts. I am very excited. Now I just have to get insurance to pay for it.
