We are well and truly back into the swing of therapy, therapy, therapy. It’s fabulous that we live where we do, and that we have to opportunity to go to early intervention therapy…..but at the same time, it’s so much running around. More so in the school holidays, Veronika has 2 older brothers, and I find myself dropping one of the other off to the grandparents, so I don’t have to take them both to Veronika’s therapy sessions. When I am being charged $155/hour for her private therapy I kind of really want to be able to fully concentrate on what Veronika’s therapists are telling me.
Her OT was so super happy when we saw her this week. We have been using a pressure vest to help with her core stability, which in turn helping her left arm function a little better, because she isn’t having to work so hard at stabilizing her core. This all means that Veronika is sitting a lot ‘taller’, and standing a lot ‘taller’, because her muscles are supported, as well as she is getting much better function out of her left arm. We still have so much work to do, but it’s so encouraging to see how much difference something can make in conjunction with all the therapy we do at home too.
