Weekly Update -- 5 - 11 July 2010

Yay, I'm 183 weeks old today!

Masinja had a pretty typical week. At Speech he once again practiced his pretend play skills with a tea party and baby dolls. He played with the Duplos with the Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore pieces again too. He also read Polar Bear, Polar Bear and Catch the Ball again. He really enjoys both books and has now memorized them. I didn't realize it but we had a copy of Brown Bear, Brown Bear at home and he has been reading that all week. Last but not least his therapist worked on having him identify boy or girl using cards and added the pronouns he or she.

During OT Masinja tolerated the trampoline better than he ever has. He rode the horsey swing and afterwards he spotted the basketball hoop so his therapist let him shoot baskets for a few minutes. He then climbed the ladder to go down the slide but instead of using turtles/frog bean bags his therapist let him roll the basketball down the slide before him. We then moved to the smaller room and he played with the activity center for a few minutes while standing on big wedge to work on his balance. For fine motor skills his therapist had him work with alligator clips or large clothes pins as well as spring loaded scissors.

That's all for now.
