OT therapy 04/19/06

Today Benji and his therapist, Ms Deanna started the session with reading a book, It was one of those Thomas the Tank listen and look books. He sat on the couch with her and was very attentive. He would open the flaps mostly with his index finger while they were reading.

While Deanna was holding a pop up toy, Benji stood up for a long time. He was having a lot of fun making the animals go bye bye. Then also of course bringing them back by pushing the buttons.

While Benji only took 2 or 3 steps in succession for Ms Deanna, he normally will take up to 5 or 6 before dropping to the ground on all 4s.

Toady he did not like Deanna touching his hands or feet. He kept pulling away. This is typical, Benji don't like anybody to hold his hands or mess with his toes.
He wasn't entirely interested with the toys Deanna brought, he played with them for a little while but then went to the Easter eggs and started playing with them.

Benji is now drinking Sweet Acidophilus milk, he drinks 3 or 4 cups of milk a day. He still gets a little gassy but he is not throwing up like he was. He is still being picky about eating. He will let Nana feed him pudding or applesauce, but other than that he wants to feed himself. He eats cereal bars, cheerios, life cereal, graham cracker sticks, veggie crackers, chicken strips/nuggets, bananas, whales, wagon wheels and puffs.
