Nathan had his bi-monthly Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Therapy yesterday. Just like previous, he managed to sit and do table-top activities for almost 30 minutes. He accomplished puzzles pretty fast this time. As the tasks became more and more difficult for him, his attention diminished.
After the 30-minute table work, they transferred to the “play” room where he was free to choose his activity. He did not show too much interest this time. He seemed very tired. True enough, when we got home he went straight to sleep.
In the previous session (3 weeks ago) Nathan still managed to pay attention to his teacher (Moroi Sensei) during the second half of the session. She encouraged him by doing silly gestures with him, blowing raspberry kisses, and dancing in front if the mirror. The second half of the session seemed more like Son-rise therapy.
