When Kaylin first started Occupational Therapy, she was having major meltdowns over tight clothing and her hair. Very quickly she was able to wear clothes for longer periods of time & the melt downs stopped. She can now wear shirts & pants she previously would not wear. New clothes are not an issue. She’s come a long way in a short period and loves the OT’s she has worked with.
