Physical Excercises

Somehow Richard seems to be getting physically stronger. It's especially prominent when he's doing his 4- point kneeling on the floor. He takes a while to 'gather and summon' all his might in order to lift his head from a flopping position. His neck, head, shoulders and back muscles have strengthened. We think this is attributed to the daily ABR and physical therapy excercises which we do diligently at home. Whatever 'therapy' we learn from Rainbow School for the special needs children, we follow up and modify it for Richard and do them at home.
I think that we have to increase the intensity of the PT exercises so that his 'stamina' can be improved. Our aim is to get him to be able to sit without support...soon!
