Emmett’s having such a very hard time right now

[igp-video src=”” poster=”https://www.theautismdad.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/13259473_1371958792820430_1638741399_n.jpg” size=”large”]
Emmett's having such a very hard time right now 😕 It's so easy to forget that just because a child with Autism can speak, doesn't mean they have the ability to express themselves. Emmett has a very, very advanced vocabulary but very, very limited expressive language skills. On days like today where it feels like we're living from one meltdown to the next, I'm reminded of this challenge. My sweet Emmett is not gifted in the ways of expressing his feelings or frustrations with words and indoor voices. Asking him what's wrong will not provide me with anything that can help me better understand what's bothering him. I instead have to follow the breadcrumb trail of behavioral changes and try and decode them.

This is some of what Emmett did in Occupational Therapy this week

[igp-video src=”https://www.theautismdad.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/13305476_1218019331576400_1925186132_n.mp4″ poster=”https://www.theautismdad.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/13277778_1086737298036364_443569237_n.jpg” size=”large”]
This is some of what Emmett did in Occupational Therapy this week Emmett had OT this week. Next week with be his first off week for the Summer. Emmett will be taking a break from PT during the Summer break. He'll be reevaluated before school starts again. The idea is to see his he maintains the progress he made during PT. If he regressed, he'll simply start back up again. It's going to be a change for him because he's used to going every single week but he'll adjust. You can see some of the activities he did during this week's OT session. He had a ton of fun and did an awesome job. OT is the greatest thing ever and I wish to God every child that needed it, was able to receive it.
