What does a day look like at feeding therapy you ask... Well it looks like chasing Gabriel from room to room telling him to 'close the door', 'dont go in there', 'time for a nap', and 'time to eat'.  There are currently five children in the intensive feeding program including Gabriel.  We rotate through to feed and play the waiting game.

Gabriel is able to open every door in the place and likes to make it known.  He enjoys calling the elevator up to us on a regular basis as well.  The only downtime at therapy is when Gabriel is sleeping.  I didn't think about it but you cant go anywhere besides the common room and his bedroom while he is sleeping so I was unable to run and grab something to eat.  I had to make a mental note that lunch's have to be packed for adults!  Goodness.  This is a learning experience for everyone!

If you have any questions about out experience please feel free to comment on a post or email me!
