What do an orange ball and a cookie have in common? In most people's eyes, not much. But to Samuel, these two objects represent a similar challenge...overcoming sensory issues.
The orange ball was a birthday gift that has been quite neglected since the day he received it. Why? Because of its squishy texture. He has always avoided having squishy/soft things on his hands, so unsurprisingly, this ball invokes quite a negative reaction.
But when I came home from a Bible study tonight, Michael and Samuel were having a great time playing with it! Michael tried to get a video, but only managed to snag a few seconds of him holding it (the rest of the video is pretty cute though, so I didn't edit it.)
Oh, and you know that cookie I mentioned? Tonight Samuel scarfed down not one, but two whole cookies in three minutes flat. Without gagging. How's that for overcoming oral sensory issues?
Cookie eating champ. Go Samuel go!
