#Autism and Occupational Therapy

Every once in awhile,  I’m totally floored by my kids. Today was one of those days. This is something that shows me,  just how incredibly intelligent Emmett is,  despite his delays.

This post will really be appreciated by our friend Julia. She’s our go to person for all things OT and PT and she has become a really good friend to the Lost and Tired family.

Emmett and I were shooting baskets when he decided to turn the trampoline on end and lean it against the wall.  Next he began bouncing a ball off the trampoline and catching it.  This was something he did at PT and OT,  the only difference being, the use of weighted balls,  which we don’t have access to.

Either way,  to me,  this is a huge stride towards independence.  I’m so totally proud of him.

This is awesome Rob, I'm happy to hear you guys consider me a friend 🙂 For a kid with Emmett's anxiety and perfectionist streak, to challenge himself like that is a big deal.
