Geno's First Speech Therapy Session
Today Geno had his first one on one speech therapy session and it went great. The total session lasted about an hour and a half and looked at his gross motor skills (cutting paper with a scissor, cutting playdough, using utensils, coloring, unscrewing caps, puzzles, taking marker tops off), to role play (such as brushing his hair, feeding the stuffed animal puppet, brushing someone's teeth, playing with trains and little people), to finding objects that are hidden.
At first Geno was very shy, but with a little prodding by the green puppet, he warmed up soon enough. Three more behavioral play sessions to go till we can sit down and have an individualized plan for Geno.
