Ball Pit Mania!
This is Ethan with his physical therapist, having about as good of a time as I think he's ever had! He's wearing the Benik body suit, but I didn't get any good shots of the bottom half. As soon as we get to PT Ethan crawls his fastest to get to that ball pit. The pit is supposed to be a sensory stimulating environment, and it obviously seems to make him happy. He can't get enough!
His PT's say that physically he has made huge strides. They are very pleased with how he has progressed, so now the focus is on his sensory processing issues. Between the cochlear implant and the new glasses he is experiencing a sensory explosion. The Benik suit is something that we've only been wearing in the evening, in the hopes that it will help settle his nervous system which never seems to regulate itself very effectively. We're also using melatonin before bed each night. He's been sleeping much better lately, which makes everyone happy!
