I have a video clip that I wanted to share, but I can't seem to figure out if it is possible to include a video in a post, but here is a little picture anyway and I will just explain this great thing Lu has learned to do in the past week!
She has her own iPad that her Grandma Brenda got her for her birthday and it has a Gumdrop case on it that is extremely protective so she can use it somewhat on her own. I prop it up on a book holder and she has been enjoying it while in her stander. Our pt, Mari, told me about an app of the classic Sesame Street book called, "The Monster at the End of this Book" which we have and have read plenty, so we got the app. We played it together quite a few times and then one day Lucy was in her stander beside me while I sat at the kitchen table peeling eggs and she was playing this app, but I had her beside me so I could help her turn the pages. But then, after a few minutes I realized that she was turning them herself! I had her arm brace on her left arm because the page turning and activities that you need to finish are in the right side, but her right arm is much less functional that her left arm, so I figured she would need help. But she didn't! And she didn't try to turn the pages until Grover said so!
And then the next day I decided to try it again and this time she was also completing the actives such as touching Grover's belly to tickle him and then touching his ropes to turn the pages, touching boards to make them fall apart, and touching a brick wall to make it fall down, all so she can go on to the next page. So, not only is Lucille May following directions, but she is using her hand, her RIGHT hand at that, to do so! She never quits amazing me! Phooey, I wish I could post the video!
