I'm sure a lot of people who have recently seen Elise probably are wondering what she's wearing around her neck so hopefully this post will help answer those questions.
Something new we're trying with our new therapists is to redirect Elise's stimming of her hands to a more functional behavior.
At the end of her necklace is a chewy tube, which she loves to bite on to get oral input. When we notice her finger in her mouth or nose we're trying to redirect her to put the chewy in her mouth. Once in awhile she finds it herself and is able to do it independently.
It's something that is going to take a lot of time to see how beneficial it is but I'm excited about it and am hoping it's something that will help her.
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
