|Still cute even with a dirty face|
When the Occupational Therapist was here the other day, I asked her again about group therapy for Felix. She had mentioned it towards the end of last year as something that would benefit Felix, because of his uneasiness around other children. She said there was a group running already, but it was for children, Felix's age, who weren't walking yet. Thankfully, for us, some of the people in the group hadn't been attending so she asked if we'd like to bring Felix along. She also recognised that, although Felix is walking, he's not boisterous and wasn't going to intimidate the other children. If anything, he would be more worried about them.

Felix enjoyed the other activities as well. He tried to thread some beads onto a pipe cleaner, and pushed some shapes into playdough. He played with some puzzles, and enjoyed putting plastic coins into a piggy bank. He had a great morning, and the highlight was that, after initially being shy, he was quite comfortable with the other children, and even threw the ball back and forward to Jacob (his little friend) a few times. All in all, it was a very positive afternoon.
