a special memory and progress noted!

CoolWe took Melissa to Napier to visit hubby’s sister.  At age eight and a half it was just awesome watching Melissa playing with their granddaughter.  We realised how much Melissa had grown and we observed the progress she had made.  It was a special day.  They both watched the video The Wizard of Oz and we were amazed to see Melissa so engrossed, age appropriate and happy. 

From that day on videos were introduced into her programme and soon she had her favourites. She loved the Our World Series and in particular the penguins.  We played them over and over for her and Lord of the Dance was another favourite. 

More progress was made as Melissa mastered sitting confidently astride a green roll provided by her therapist!
