Upsee Therapy Programme and Webinar!

  I was thrilled to learn about the launch of the Upsee therapy Programme. With Sebastian at school full time and weekends spent having fun as a family, we find little time to ensure he also receives therapy. During the summer months he spends time outside in his walker and on his bike but those options aren't… Continue reading Upsee Therapy Programme and Webinar!

Eye Gaze: The Trial(s) and Tribulations 

For two weeks this summer Sebastian had another eye gaze trial with the Tobii/Dynavox I-12. This was his third extended trial with the device and he used it once a week at school the previous year.

Bunny Hugs and Pumpkins

We are still here! A lot of things have been keeping us busy and our minds occupied. A new school year. Two new schools, ironically neither the one we live across the street from.

Keep Fighting

   I met a 52 year old woman today. She introduced herself to me after I made sure she had enough space to see the musicians at the Day of the Dead celebrations at Evergreen Brickworks. We had biked there so had the double chariot which is kind of a monster in small spaces. I… Continue reading Keep Fighting

Happy Halloween

For my Woody and Doc McStuffins. You made today perfect. From spending the morning carving pumpkins to getting all the candy ready to pass out; to photos on the porch to Trick-or-Treating.  Let's not forget your request and love of the costumes I created just for you!     I am skeptical of people sometimes. I… Continue reading Happy Halloween
