With this switch (that I hook up to the computer with special programs for him) he can hit it with his foot to learn cause and effect. We tried to get him to use the switch with his hand but he is too defensive and doesn’t like to touch it. He does so well hitting it with his foot. Sometimes he will kick it really hard and I have to check it and make sure he hasn’t broken it. I am going to ask for more switches too just in case he breaks one. I am also in need of a removable D drive for my computer because I have a little computer that doesn’t have one. I am not able to put Ryan’s programs on my computer without it.
Ryan can also hold objects in his hand and on command he can put them in a plastic bowl. I am so proud of him for being able to do this and so glad he has had such great speech therapists to guide him so far on his journey.
I will leave you know with some pictures of Trevor, Zack, Macie, and Tripp eating ice-cream cones. This was Trevor’s first ice-cream cone and he loved it! He had to have a bath after. =0)
Oh, and here is a picture of our little family that we had printed off to put on our back windshield on the Van:
I know! it is SO cute! Have a great day!
