Progress

Addie requires assistance in all areas and in all aspects of her daily life.
We definitely are seeing improvement and she continues to work hard every day!
One area that we have noticed improvement is in her hand washing skills.
Although Addie requires help with hand washing, she is doing better than she was at the beginning of the school year.
Addie has to have someone stand with her while she washes her hands.
She needs someone with her to help her with her balance, getting the soap for her hands and helping her through each step of the process. However, Addie has learned how to get down the steps without physical assistance.
Someone has to be standing with her to help her if she needs it or to catch her if she loses her balance, but other than that, she has learned how to hold onto the sink and step down.


After she makes it to the bottom, she will finish wiping her hands, then she will throw the paper towel into the trash.
It may seem like trivial progress to some, but it is huge progress in our little world and we are so proud of her and so thankful for the hard work and dedication from Addie's teachers and therapists!
