Having a ball
Matt's recently underwent an Occupational Therapy assessment. I had shared with the OT that I was not interested in having Matt compared to typical kids in terms of his milestones, but that she should rather help me understand where he is at, where he is heading towards, and what we can do to help him get there. And that is exactly what she did - so we are now armed with lots of fun and creative ways to partner Matt in his development. The first idea that we put into practice can be seen below. A very simple design - just an old ball pushed into an old pair of stockings - and the result is hours of delightful entertainment.
