Anyone that knows Archie will know about his autism & severe sensory issues around water. I really struggle to even bath him let alone get him in the pool and due to his speech & communication issues, it’s not something that can be easily explained to him. We’ve had lot’s of input from occupational health to help with his sensory processing difficulties and he’s been making some amazing progress.
Whilst he wouldn’t actually get in the pool properly, or get wet, one day he did actually let Daddy take him out onto the water on his crocodile. It might have only been one time but it was the first time, and that’s making progress. We didn’t even think he would go this far.
This photo might just look like any other simple snapshot from a family holiday but for us it’s a huge step, so that’s why it’s this weeks ‘Sunday Photo’
