Fun or Therapy?
Just recently, Jenna finally blew her first bubble! It also helps to hold the wand a bit closer, but despite that fact, she simply could not blow a bubble until this past weekend. It is something we've worked on for therapy to help strengthen the muscles in her mouth. She does a lot of drooling for someone her age and therefore suggests that she needs extra work on those mouth muscles. Included in that therapy is blowing bubbles, horns, balloons etc. Although it doesn't seem much like work to her, it's just plain fun in her book. Given the fact that she has now learned to blow her first bubble, that means progress. Jenna or us couldn't be happier even for a seemingly small step. Shouldn't all therapy be this fun?!!
