Elisha has been meeting with his OT fairly regularly for the past year. Since the fall, when our van broke down, she has been coming to our house. Our house is loud, we have five kids. While Elisha has been working on strengthening his fine motor abilities, he also has been learning to working through frustrations and follow a sequence of instructions.
During each visit he has been tackling a project that requires him to work step by step. I am amazed at how much progress we made this past year. I should have been taking pictures of all the projects he has been completing (note to self – take more pictures during OT visits). Here is a bridge that Elisha completed out of Uber Stix.
We have some fun plans for next year and I can’t wait to share our journey with you. Our OT visits will most likely be bi-weekly during the school year and I will try to make a point to document all the fun projects we do and what we hope to accomplish (skill-wise) through them.
