Madison had a great morning at school. Today was physio day at school in the gym. She walked on the treadmill, worked on standing and some jumping and she took 4 steps by herself. This week Madison and her classmates are learning about firefighters. A fire truck visited her school today and she had a chance to meet a firefighter and check out the inside of the truck.
After school Madison spent her afternoon with Janine and Suzanne and went to conductive education at March of Dimes. She worked on her upper body strength by giving Monika high fives with weights on her arms. She also practiced her jumping and she held her independent standing for 20 seconds!
Madison spent the rest of her day with Nana and Papa while Mommy and Daddy went to Madison’s school for an event. Madison went for a walk with Papa and Suzanne, showed Nana her play dough and her new nightgown at bedtime.
Madison’s school ends in a few weeks so tonight was volunteer appreciation night. For those that don’t know, Madison goes to Centennial Infant and Child Centre every morning. It is a preschool for children between the ages of 2 and 4 who have special needs. Every day Madison has 2 special Ed teachers and a 1:1 volunteer who work with her on all kinds of things like sensory, music time, gym time, story time and 1:1 time with her volunteer to do puzzles, alphabet, number work etc. Centennial would not be what it is without it’s fantastic volunteers. Mommy and Daddy were able to chat with one of Madison’s favourite volunteers Tiffany. It was so nice to share stories of Madison’s successes and progression over the year with Tiffany and to thank her for all of her hard work. Madison is hoping to see Tiffany over the summer to continue their special relationship.
