First Day of Constraint Therapy

"I LOVE Home Depot!"

Jonathan took Allie to her first day of constraint therapy today, which included an OT and PT evaluation and making the cast.  Both of the therapists were impressed with how functional Allie is. She doesn't get the cast officially on until tomorrow but I'm excited to see how it goes.

This program seems a lot cooler than our previous iterations.  Every other Tuesday a therapy dog comes to interact with the kids, they get to go in the pool one day a week, play on the playground as weather permits, and they alternate intense activities like strength training with light activities like story time with page turning and crafting.

The bummer news is that Allie didn't get the blue, pink, and yellow cast with yellow rocket ships that she wanted.  However, the therapists kept the cast overnight and are going to draw rocket ships on it for her.  I hope she likes it!
