Vacation Therapy.

Ellie is taking most of August off from the various therapies she receives, but that doesn't mean she's not doing informal work.

Marco Island, Florida proved to be all the therapy Ellie needed on vacation.  She walked on sand, imitated tasks like putting on sunblock, drank from my running water bottle, walked down to the water and sat in it by herself, learned new animals, and engaged in sensory play.

Thanks, Marco Island!

Sometimes therapy becomes all-consuming and I need to step back and remember that Ellie is constantly learning and growing, even if she still thinks a seagull is a penguin.

Gross motor and sensory work.

More gross motor and sensory.

Gross motor and speech: "Hi birds!"

Imitation skills and fine motor.

Not Ellie.  But awesome.

Sensory, fine motor, and "counting" the shells.  "Two, two, fwee."

Pin It!
