Kate had an occupational therapy appointment at 3:00 today. The snow was already falling pretty heavily but we decided to make our way to the hospital. We both drive Subaru's because of having to travel with children to appointments in weather like this. Welcome to New Brunswick.
Once we arrived Kate got right to work in the waiting room. She loves coming to her appointments. She has memorized the way down the long hallway to the Occupational Therapy department and heads for her favourite toy right away.
Once her appointment was underway she got into her favourite therapy toy "the tube". Just look at her face. She adores hiding away in this tube. It is not unusual for children with autism to find comfort in small spaces that provide pressure and privacy.
The main reason for her appointment today was to see if Kate would enjoy the therapy swing. We are putting one her in sensory room so we wanted to make sure it was suitable for her. I guess you can tell she likes it. Who wouldn't? Alex even took a video of Kate in the swing to show our blog readers (see below). Can I just say one more time that speech therapy and occupational therapy are the most amazing treatments for Kate. I wish she could spend all day with these therapists.
