WDSD Post 4 Therapy

Day 4 pic for WDSD Once you get the diagnosis of DS you are encouraged to start 'therapy' ASAP - that includes speech, physical and occupational as well as any other specialists or health professionals you might already be seeing. The first year seems a bit full on but after a while it integrates into the rhythm of your life and you make it fun. I used to love rolling Hannah around on this exercise ball and singing pirate songs to help her body strength. She loved it too. Research shows that early intervention can make a big difference for children and their families. We were lucky and our EI team was family focussed and very good :)
