How did I miss this, so sorry. I just thought bloody hell its been a while since I posted in this chat.
So here's the latest.
Development wise he is doing really well. Ashton can now walk for longer in his walker, he can crawl up the stairs and get down the stairs (with assistance). So his sense of exploration is improving massively. He still wont attempt his first unaided step but he is so close. Just keep going and he will just do it one day.
He has also lost his first tooth, unfortunately he swallowed it. So I have been inspecting his nappies but to no avail. Cant find it and I have given up looking as I am sure you can imagine its not the most pleasant task .
Having some trouble with Ashton's NHS physio. She is just useless. The attitude of NHS physios is just a joke, work part time and when they are working its the absolute minimum. Ashton's physio report wasn't received until the end of his first school year. How are teachers meant to implement physio activities in Ashton's everyday learning if they are given nothing. Luckily me and the wife are on the ball and asked the teachers to do what our private physio does with Ashton. So Ashton hasn't gone without but it just seems like the NHS physio is 9 months behind. I'm telling her what Ashton needs.
We raised a complaint with her manager and she's no better, just palms you off. We are going higher up with our private physio assisting the complaint cause she is also not happy with Ashton's physio report, absolute basic and doesn't reflect where Ashton's is striving to get to.
Health wise Ashton has been really good, no illnesses which is always a bonus. Since the last update we went to Wales on a little break away and Skegness for a weekend. Good times playing on the beach, He would sit there all day letting the sand run through his fingers. All sensory play.
We have also took the plunge and booked to go Disney World Florida. Flying out on his Birthday (New Years Day). So we have a weeks cruise in October and a 2 week Florida trip start of next year. Good times coming up. Just need to pay for it all
