Thinking Outside the Box
April 28, 2010 5:27 AM by Devon Alley
My most recent session with A.'s therapist has left me quite contemplative. I will preface this post with what is probably already quite obvious -- it can be very difficult to deal with A. sometimes. And I don't mean that she's a "bad kid" or "terror Read More...
Therapy Sessions & Calming Decor

April 10, 2010 9:24 AM by Devon Alley
This past Wednesday, I finally had the chance to watch one of A.'s OT sessions -- I got to see how she interacted with the therapist, and the sort of activities they did together and worked on. Needless to say, I was extremely impressed. A. was not at Read More...
Spring Break and OT Plans of Treatment
April 7, 2010 5:18 AM by Devon Alley
The remainder of Spring Break was rather uneventful, and A. seemed to enjoy not having to contend with school or daycare. She really remained in a stellar mood throughout the entirety of last week, which caused me to wonder yet again why school in particular Read More...
