Yay, Play Time With Bonnie!
Well today was a busy day for A once again! (Are there ever days that aren’t?) Anyhow I was kind of in panic mode this morning because I heard the phone ringing and when I woke up it was 10am! And little A was still sleeping. However his early interventionist Bonnie was coming for 10:30am. Needless to say I hate feeling rushed but she ended up being late so it all worked out well.
She always brings all of these neat toys for A to play with. We have a enabling device that he just pushes the button and it makes the toys go. It is really neat because it can connect into many different toys and makes it much easier for him to do. So today she brought this really neat train that connects to it and he LOVED it! She has left it with us to use for the next few weeks.
I had asked her on her opinion on why A seems to have issues holding toys and seems very sensitive. She said that it is very normal to have sensory issues with all of his problems and it is something that you have to work on to help him get over it. I remember when we first brought A home how you could tell that he was kind of in “sensory overload”. And that was just by playing with him like a normal baby or when there were a lot of people around him. He doesn’t do that anymore, but he still does it when you touch his hands, feet or even tickle him. I have found some really neat sites for enabling devices and toys for special needs children. I have put a link on the side under sites that I like. There are so many neat things out there for children with special needs!
