From Garrett's Occupational Therapist:
Garrett is now on a GFCF diet and mom feels he's really responding well. He is now pointing!
Garrett played with us for an hour with just one trip to his room to get a book. We introduced brushing with a sensory brush and he enjoyed it, especially on his hands. He played and explored a variety of toys and showed true joy when playing with the accordion tubes. He also let us help him with a hammer toy and shape sorter. He did much more referencing of mom and big brother.
From Garrett's Speech Pathologist:
Great Session! Garrett was both easier to engage and stayed engaged for longer periods. We were able to get Garrett to let us intrude on his play with a magnetic writer and beads. We imitated him and then he imitated us! ... Garrett loved Row Row Your Boat. A slow version with lots of pull & push calmed him. Garrett said "down" at the end, playing up/down from mom's lap!
He did say something that sounded like "down" after I said down and let him fall backwards. He wouldn't repeat it again. I am going to keep working on it.
