Something HUGE happened yesterday! Miri's understanding of her emotions and ability to express them in words has been such a challenge for her. To give an example, she has never said someone hurt her feelings or that she is angry. (She is turning 14 next week) Yesterday, she came to me and said that she was feeling jealous and asked me what to do!!! We were told at Brain Balance that we would start seeing her grasp abstract concepts as her therapy continued...but to actually see it happen is truly a miracle! Thank you Lord!
We appreciate your prayers as we have 6 more weeks to go!!

This past Monday we were given Miri's first Brain Balance Progress report. After 21 days...
"Mirielle has gone up 2 age levels in Fine Motor, Proprioception, Supine Core, and Lateral Core! She has gone up one age level in Prone Core, Brachiation and Gait/Aerobics. In reading Mirielle has gone from 2nd to 3rd grade in Drawing Conclusions and is working on 2nd grade Getting the Main Idea. In Math she is working on 2nd grade multi step word problems involving addition and subtraction. "
We are now to increase the number of push-ups and sit-ups, and also have Miri do a fine motor skill activity daily (pick up small paperclips in a bowl and transfer to another bowl quickly for 30 sec.). Lastly, we are to have her play "Concentration" several times a week to help with memory.
We are also seeing a rapid increase in Mirielle's vocabulary as well as increased proper use of vocabulary :). She has always been witty but she is truly becoming a little comedian!
We have about 9 more weeks to go!
