It's been a while since I've updated Autism Mom Diaries. So much has happened since November, the biggest change, no doubt, being the coronavirus outbreak. Let me detail some of Ethan's developments since November, including how we've coped with the COVID-19 situation until the present time. #autismawareness
Today, Ethan's ABA therapist guided him to play "Mary Had A Little Lamb" on his little piano. After a few repetitions, he played a very close approximation of the tune!
I already had this feeling that I wanted to eventually become a professional in the field of serving special needs children. And ever since I started this blog and Ethan got diagnosed my interest in the field of pediatric therapy grew. I attended the info session to see if studying Occupational Therapy would indeed be for me.
When Ethan was a little over a year old, someone commented that he played "funny." At that time, I thought the he would perhaps overcome it quickly. He would whack toys and objects instead of picking them up.
