SOOC Saturday - River OT

Occupational Therapy is critical for R - Not covered by insurance -from school he gets a paltry 30 minutes a week
But we are becoming quite adroit with finding OT moments in nature and in everyday life
This is a picture from LAST Sunday -
We waded into the river and with the stones beneath the feet and the rushing water
Learned through throwing stones the concept of
1. Colors in nature
2. Big and Small
3. Far and Near
( R is a creature of drama and wants throw big red stones far )

I love photos of kids in a river or ocean. To me it's kinda symbolic of them "stepping into life" and sink or swim and all that. So cute. He looks so small compared to the river.

Cute picture! I sometimes see Ethan doing something or someone else doing something with Ethan and a little light comes on and says...hey that can count as some OT....It's funny how there are so so many things in everyday life that would be considered OT, I find myself telling people here and there and they look at me sometimes because they don't know what OT is. Just walking through the grass is a biggie! K, have fun this summer with your precious little guy.

I love the picture!!! He looks like he's ready to take on anything standing in the water like that!

Thanks for stopping by my blog lately!

I have heard that water is one of the best sensory experiences for a kid. I have really found that to be true for my kiddo!
