Another ABR clinic

Well we are home from another ABR Clinic where we learnt some new techniques that have shown some real positive effects on other kids.
The tools have changed over the years and I must say I like the latest tools we use, they are small, easy to grab and get a bit of ABR time in easily. We got three eggs shaped balls with varying degrees of softest of gel like material.
Our main focus for our new exercises is around the shoulder girdle, with C7/shoulder blade,Upper Thoracic and mid Thoracic we also have a black cylinder of quite firm density that we are working on her elbow anterior and posterior.

I mostly do my ABR therapy at night when Missy is suppose to be going to sleep, with some of the new exercises,she is actually falling to I need to just stay awake.

Excursion on the horizon

Another 3 day excursion is planned for Year 3/4 next term and Missy is pretty excited after last years excursion was such a hit.
This year they are going to a Sport & Recreation Camp at a Lake only about an hour away.
The school has booked the trailer again to carry Kirrily's powerchair and equipment and her teacher and I are going to visit the site to check out the finer details.
As usual nothing happens without plenty of planning, so Missy can just get on that bus and have a go at everything her peers do.
