Abigail 4.5 just started a new private OT program - she aged out of the ECI program- they kept her on a full year longer than most, so we've been without OT for about 9 months.
She was incredibly resistant to most of the ladies suggestions - as is normal for a new OT, new program, new place, etc, but I think its going to be wonderful. We've been waitlisted a long time.
However, we've got new concerns - not new to Abi, but new that we are just now getting diagnosed with them
Ocular Motor Apraxia, Visual Recognition Disturbances, severe dyspraxia of well, many systems... still unravelling that, as well as heavy vestibular needs and overall.. she's a sensory kid.
So, she's got the OT going and we have a pediatric behavioral opthamologist appt on Monday for vision therapy.
Brayden just started with an OT about 2 months ago and just loves it...it has been the best thing we've done, as of this far! I have been seeing some progress with him already, he has been touching things that he wouldn't have before, he is increased his upper body strength and muscle tone, and has tried some new foods which has been a BIG struggle for us for a long time. He is tolerating more touch as well. I honestly can't say enough great things about it!
My daughter is a former micor preemie(27wks.)and she too has SID .Her OT just started .I have noticed her hating too much clutter at home or a toy with too many pices for example she used to stack blocks but now she hates it.anything more than one annoys her and loses
Sus over at the Spirited High Needs Kids has been looking for you. I think she was a bit worried because she hasn't seen you around over there.
Hope all goes well with the new OT. How did it go at the pediatric behavioral opthamologist appointment?
