The following is my journal entry for yesterday!!
Me: I planned to make some playdough this afternoon and decided to include Nick in the process. I am not going to write about our experience as the video tells its own story. I also didn't write up a plan.... we just went with the flow! We have NEVER made playdough together, so this is a brand new experience for us both!! What a long way we have come..... I recall the early days when Nick wouldn't get off the couch and he disliked any form of interaction. We spent a good 10 minutes (without stress from Nick) making playdough, however, I have managed to shorten the video clip to around 3 minutes!!
Consultant: That was incredible! The attention and interest was amazing...Nick was loving being a part of the interaction and he was your APPRENTICE!! Loving it!! Oh and you may not know it but the fact that when something dropped and he picked it up, that is also an objective as he did not show stress and he was part of the solution! Definitely want to work on his motor planning through some RDI activities..I think his stirring just needs a bit of extra support and it will be sure to improve! SO many more doors are opening up for us to work on obstacles now that his resilience is improving every week!!!!!!!!!! Kathy
It is not often that I add video footage to my journal, however, I thought this clip was exceptional and well worth sharing with Kathy. As for me.... I am *thrilled* with our progress!
