speech therapy and sensory play

The speech therapy has hit a bit of a stumbling block in its infancy. The SLT doesn't believe traditional speech therapy is going to work for Lamb and so while we will still be keeping out appointments she is going to go back to the drawing board and is researching methods used specifically with autistic kids. She's been great listening to my concerns about Moo generally and is keeping notes on him as well for when his referal does go through.
I finally remembered to snap some pics with JT in the sensory room. Honestly this woman is fabulous, she really cannot do enough for you. Not only is she doing sessions in their sensory room with us to help Lamb out with his sensory integration problems (it doesn't compensate for an OT assessment, but it's a whole lot better than being left alone to try to help Lamb) but when I mentioned how I had really wanted to find a gymnastics group for Lamb (The only one in our town is a girls only group) she told us she was a kids gymnastics instructor in the next town over and that she would take us over to the gym and do a few sessions with the boys. Honestly this women is an angel!
