Shoutout to Dovi's Respite House counselors who showed up tonight and took him to the wedding of a third counselor. They gave him the time of his life, as he rarely goes to weddings. I can't wait to see the pictures! [waves]

Best Tactile/Proprioceptive Sensory Toy EVER

Move over PlayDough, balloons, rice, sand.... Welcome GAZZ-IT / FLOAM.
It's cleaner, more fun (cuz it's stretchy), never dries out, doesnt leave such a mess, and best of all, Dovi doesnt eat it, or swallow it. And even adults enjoy the sensory experience of rolling and kneading this compound.
I bought the GAZZ IT locally (and you can find it at Dollar Tree), but on Amazon I found it as PlayFoam.
Fantastic for OT and sensory touch.

Has Anyone tried the Son-Rise program?

If any of you are an autism parent, I am curious if you have tried the Son Rise program?
I heard so much about it but cant imagine how I can implement it in practical terms. I don't have spare room in my house, and Dovi does not sit still. Plus, I hardly have any one-on-one time with him so I don't even have when to implement such a program. In addition, the training is costly and involves traveling. I wish there would be a way to train long-distance via Webinars or DVDs.
I'm curious if anyone has tried it - specifically if you have a really low functioning child like Dovi. Please let me know if you did. Thanks.
