Our focus since returning from Philadelphia has been fine motor. We discussed Jadon's possible tendon transfer for his wrist in a year with our therapist and she feels that working on hand function is a top priority. So the focus has been fine motor, fine motor, fine motor.
We have recently started a workbox system that seems to be working pretty well. I say it is workbox time and Jadon goes over to see what surprises await him today. We work in number order to help Jadon with learning to recognize his numbers. There are six boxes that should take us about an hour to get through depending on the interest level in each activity. If he is really into an activity we will not move on until he is ready so we don't always get through all six boxes. The workboxes are a combination of preschool learning activities and therapy activites.
Below is an example of one of the fine motor activities that I include in at least one of the above boxes each day. I got these heart sticks from The Dollar Tree. I thought they were perfect to put beads on.
The Therapy Shoppe along with some cool tweezers and grabbers for Righty. This is a great website for specialty toys for any skill you are working on!
Jadon cut all three blue squares in the picture above with Righy. MAJOR accomplishment! So proud of this boy!
Here is a video of Jadon using Righty to take beads off of the stick after he was finished. We do what seem like little things like this each day hoping that they all add up in the end!
