This has been a stellar week at camp - their theme was dinosaurs, which Dominic loves. He did the craft all by himself on Monday - which involved cutting, coloring, and stapling as well as writing his name. Given that he didn't bring home a single craft project last year, it was so nice to see him holding it when I picked him up.
We have done our Gemiini videos 6 times a day, every day. Wednesday was his first speech and occupational therapy appointment since we started in earnest and his speech therapist noticed a huge improvement in his articulation, specifically the end consonants. For a week in we are very pleased.
Today when I picked him up to take him
From day camp to speech and occupation therapies, his lead counselor remakes that he had been "super verbal"
All day. I like to hear that. He watched his Gemiini videos all the way to therapy, then I let him switch the iPad to angry birds for a few minutes before his appointment. When his ot arrived for him - and I told him it was time to be done with angry birds, he turned it off and went back with no complaining. A minor miracle!
After his appointment - which he is at right now - we will do Gemiini for the 30 minute drive to my appointment, then the 30 minute drive home. When we get home he will have a 45 minute ioncleanse by amd footbath, dinner, bath and go to bed.
He is incredibly excited for our annual circus trip in Saturday.
