    You wouldn't believe the amount of people who were never told that OT would help. I wasn't until my son was old enough that medicaid wouldn't pay for it any longer. But then I went to school for OTA, and I just added things in myself. He had a very sensory Christmas one year, with moon shoes, and a therapy ball, and several other sensory oriented gifts to help him. Games and toys and such. We do a lot of 'life skills' stuff too. Our kids tend not to learn through osmosis like a lot of kids do, you have to teach them how to wash dishes and do laundry, and clean floors, they don't just learn by watching generally.
