Welcome back. In this post I’m going to share a bit more about what Emmett does while at OT. This video shows Emmett using the Monkey Swing. While using this, Emmett works on alot of upper and lower body strength. She first bounces Emmett a few times. This is called crashing. Basically it helps Emmett get some of the impact type things that his body craves.
As you can see, Emmett absolutely loves the Monkey Swing. It took a few weeks for him to warm up to this but he’s very comfortable with it now. I’m quite proud of all he is accomplishing.
I hope this helps you to have a little better understanding of some of the things that take place during an OT session. Keep in mind that these sessions are geared for Emmett’s particular sensory needs, so it may be different for your child.
