Looks like fun, huh? This is what Matthew gets to do every Wednesday. Matthew has a condition called Sensory Processing Disorder, part of the developmental problems he has had, along with ADD. This obstacle course is part of his weekly therapy. It builds self-confidence, builds strength and helps improve muscle tone, as well as other benefits. The lady in the photos is a student therapist, but he works weekly with a wonderful occupational therapist who we are so blessed to have met! Here is an excellent link if you are interested in learning more about SPD and its treatment.

  1. I may be biased (since I am Matthew's Occupational Therapist) but can't you tell from the pictures that he is doing an awesome job! Valarie
