It’s Official

Seamus does have Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). To what extent and what sub category, I don’t know yet; Kieran was being a booger at the appointment, and I missed half of the testing the OT did. We couldn’t talk much after, because Seamus kept taking off and grabbing everything. We will go to OT once…

When Things Go Well

Another round of OT/PT!

Stacey does Ian’s occupational therapy (which basically covers all fine motor skills), cognitive development, social development and speech therapy. He isn’t really delayed in all those areas but she incorporates them all in…
