Then there was this weird brushing thingy. and at some point I'll start this special therapeutic sensory listening thing.

overall it was fun!!

my next appt is Thursday and we're going to work in the pool!

That's so awesome! I'm so happy for you. I'm thinking about getting my son into OT.

Swimming at the pool Tuesday was fun, we played several different games that got our heart rates up as well as worked on endurance and balance

I got in a office visit yesterday and we went into this multi sensory room called a "Snoezelen" which was really cool, and I layed under my hand-made by my mum and I weighted blanket(though I want to buy a professionally made one, they are about $200) on a bean-bag chair with vibrating speakers and watched the star projection on the ceiling in the dark/changing colors of these string(spaghetti-like) lights.
It was cool and rather calming.

went yesterday to the pool, we played a sort of football game which I didn't like very much, then we played a game called the wall where people stand on one foot and pretend to be a wall and not fall over while the other people try and whirlpool you and knock you over. then we played a no-splash game
and then my favorite part was my OT and I went off on our own and I had to fetch swim rings from the bottom in patterns.
My mum joined this session so she could know what it's like

oh and we finished with Watsu
