This week in Aquatherapy, he stepped up onto the box, walked over it and back down with no help!!! No holding the therapist hand, no hesitation, and for the first few times no resistance!! Once I got the camera out he did start to hesitant and then would squeal after he stepped down. Still it was great!!
He does his best work when I'm not paying attention. If I speak or he sees me watching, he starts being difficult. I waited until he'd done this up and over several times before I videoed him. Now he loves watching himself over and over!
I can't say enough good things about Aquatherapy! Asa's first steps alone were in the water. Asa's had some great therapist too. He tends to start out great, work hard for a few weeks and once the therapists are wrapped around his finger, he decides to lead the session! And by lead, I mean he only wants to play and not work! You can see how this is a problem. So far all of his therapists have been tough, and he hasn't gotten away with that long! Can you imagine the ear piercing squeals added to screams, both echoing all thru the pool area and into the waiting area? He can be LOUD! Thankfully, he's been pretty cooperative the last few weeks and look how it paid off! I'm so proud of him!
