|He has his train station, flash cards about bugs, a bagel, and of course one of his new favorite airplanes! One hopes this would be enough to keep him occupied...|
|He absolutely LOVES airplanes!|
That's pretty much the latest about the whole school thing. I'm in a hurry to type now that both kids are up and want 100% of my attention! Sheesh! We're still meeting with the OT. The latest issue was Ryan was giving us a hard time during bed time. The OT is so smart. She always helps me see that the problems usually have simple solutions. All we did was turn the noise maker off and the problems subsided. Awesome! Our other current issue is Ryan is biting still... And when I say still it's pretty often he either bites or pokes or jabs or something mean. This is typical of sensory processing I'm assuming since every questionnaire I've filled out asked if it seems like "your child is a bully." I need to find a mini trampoline AND a hammock swing for cheap because he loves to bounce and he loves to swing. The OT suggested adding these to his daily routine to see if it helps keep the bullying at bay. The cheapest trampoline I've found is $25 on the Walmart website. And I need to hang a simple hammock swing inside so I can swing Ryan... There's so much I want to get him on Amazon that's great for his therapy too! It's therapeutic for him to carry heavy loads and they have these neat medicine balls that are all bumpy that come in different weights. Ryan loves to play with them at the OT's office. They look like this:
It's also good for him to walk through cloth tubes.. It's hard to explain... here's a picture:
I was thinking of making the tunnel thing. Shouldn't be too difficult... in thought! He also loved sliding a ramp on one of these roller boards (laying on his tummy of course). I'd have to construct or buy a ramp though lol... Or just launch him outside down a driveway.... (realllllll safe!).
Currently my main objective is to get the hammock and the mini trampoline... I think I will order them today. They're not expensive. Well that's all for now. I gotta get these kids ready for school.
