The Class of 2026

Man... 2026... that's the FUTURE! That's sci-fi movies and boxy metal robots and skin that falls away to reveal steel and glowing red eyes....

... or... it's just Thom's buddies in Daycare!

A Day in the Life

Hank, as I think I've mentioned before, has now FOUR therapists that each come twice a week for 45 min a session. You can do the math - that's a lot of special attention to help make our lil guy the most awesome he can be!

Here is a little video with Amy, his newest teacher, Special Instruction (I think that's her title/role). She is here to help make communicating with Henry the strongest it can be: learning new sounds and signs, making decisions, etc.

The other three therapies are Speech (for transitioning into feeding by mouth now, speaking later), Occupational Therapy (aka OT, for gross motor skills and strength) and Physical Therapy (aka PT, for fine motor skills as well as skills/strength (the two often overlap)).
