Hello friends, Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is enjoying this rainy weather today. Jameson was so excited to see and feel the rain outside this morning! He loves rainy days because of the puddles he can splash in during and after 🙂 I love them because it takes Zero effort and he gets all his energy out and enjoys the water! If your into playing in the rain, like Jameson is, try and get outside today. I missed my friends this morning , but below is videos of the lessons for today.

Therapy Monday!

We had our fourth summer school therapy group today. We appreciate all of our friends who were able to make it, and we hope to see you all next week! I have attached the Google Slide presentation below. You could read it to your child, and dance and sing along with the videos.

Below is a Recorded Group Therapy Session where Ms. Dawn, Ms. Letrisha, and Ms. Syeda go through the slides and songs together


We shared how to make sensory bottles and sensory bags today. Please watch the videos in the PDF file to learn more details about how to make them. While making the sensory bottle and bag, ask your child if they want to put in “more” items in the container. Have your child grasp items and release them into the bottle or bag. To further practice their grasping skills, have your child practice holding onto the sensory bottle or bag. After making the sensory bag, have your child press their hands on top of the bag. To practice head/neck control and eye gaze, parents can hold the sensory bottle and move it to the right and left of the child and ask the child to follow the bottle. 
Practice the movements of the songs and show your child how to respond to the questions by using his or her primary mode of communication. Our core vocabulary words for this week are ‘More’ and ‘Done’. Modes of communication include eye gaze (look at ‘more’ or ‘done’ symbols), body movements (nod head ‘yes’ or shake head ‘no’), gestures (point to ‘more’ or ‘done’ picture symbols, use hands to sign ‘more’ or ‘done’), or vocalizations (“more”, “done”). 

Please let us know if you have any questions! 
Your therapy team, Syeda Mahmood (OT), Letrisha Stallard (PT) and Dawn Hunt (SLP)
