He initializes movement on his own, even though he fails to perform whatever skill it is he is trying to do, so that's a good sign. it shows that he is motivated but just doesn't understand what he has to do to get from point A to point B. For example, if he is laying on his back and he wants to be sitting up, he just kind of flails around and cries because he doesn't know that to get there, he needs to roll over to his side then push himself up. <------ homework assignment #1 PtH said that since he has not been standing and bending and pushing and pulling, that the pathways for those brain-muscle connections just haven't been formed yet.

The whole time she was checking off boxes and filling in bubbles and scribbling notes in her Andrew File. Tonight she said she will input everything into her computer program and she will get back a score that tells her what program is best suited to help my little nugget (she believes he will qualify for fine motor as well as gross motor). From there, she will arrange another meeting with me and the Services Coordinator where we will discuss what steps need to be taken next. She gave me 2 more homework assignments (clapping and bending), a shopping list (step stool, yoga ball, and Pediasure) and said she'd call me this weekend to arrange that meeting for next week.

So now on to a section I'd like to call PHOTOS TO SHOW HIS FUTURE GIRLFRIENDS (yes Maddie and Bella, that means you):
