This week AJ has finally mastered flushing the toilet. This may not be a big step for most but this has been a 3 month work in process. When we first met AJ, he did not have the muscle tone to flush the toilet. He could put his fingers on the "flusher" but he could not turn it. So mom and dad would have to help him move it along. We have been working with him everyday having him try applying more pressure. This is also a form of occupational therapy (I am guessing) using the pincer movement of the hand. Now that he has mastered the flush, what's next? Door knobs, light switches, scissors?
