One of my favorite little guys turned three this week and finished hippotherapy paid for by the early intervention program. His grandmother baked treats for all the staff-which shows just how much families appreciate what we do.
A little girl who was never able to do sit-ups without some physical assist- today lied supine reaching above her head with a magnetic bingo wand to catch plastic fish and then sitting up with just verbal cues. I have used this activity before- attaching paper clips to the fish, but today I hid them on the trail, so she could find them and then made her do sit-ups to catch each one as I held  them above her head. Motivating with activities is what occupational therapy is all about......
