By Ailsa Walker (student PT) 2013
Mums goals for the term were as follows:

acquire new cut-out table and new AFOs.
to have more ideas for fine motor skills
Communication development.
Activities included:
sit-to-stand practice
reaching and rotation in standing
weight shift from one foot to the other
long sitting
resisted walking
independent standing
Session Outcomes
Gas goal will be assessed this week.
CPL will continue with ongoing assessment and therapy to increase Sean's independence with his mobility, to improve his participation in home and school activities and to increase his confidence (for further information see the FSP.)
Activities and exercises that Sean can do at home to help his development were discussed with mum and demonstrated during therapy.
A report could be made to provide the family with solid information for their own reference in the home.
