A Boy and His Love

Guess who got scissors today?



To say he is excited is an understatement.  He has been wanting to cut with scissors so badly but can't quite manage the regular safety scissors.  We met with the occupational therapist at school for an evaluation and based on my previous conversations with her, she knew that he was wanting to cut with scissors so she brought him a special pair.  The finger holes are joined together so they operate more on spring action than a regular pair of scissors.  Since they don't come apart, he can use both hands to hold them and push since his half an pointer finger is not quite strong enough to grip the hole.  In the words of the OT, "let me know if he sleeps with them tonight."  On the way home from school, he kept saying "I like scissors!"  It's now 4:21 and he has spent the last 25 minutes or so cutting and drawing.  He is enamored!

That's great that he likes them and is able to manipulate them.
