Clayton's O.T. has figured out how to use his love of home movies to motivate him. She videoed him today as he went through his feeding therapy. He is very into watching himself on the screen, so he got to do so on the phone's screen while it was actually taping him, and then again when she played it back for him.
It is in absolute miracle how far he has come. This is the child who at one year old would nearly gag at the sight of others eating soft foods like the yogurt he licks on here. His oral aversion was so severe, he couldn't even stand to have his own hands near his mouth. What an answer to prayer to see him touching foods to his tongue! He has come so far--I'm hoping at this rate, he'll be able to eat a bite or two of cake on his sixteenth birthday!
