The fam went camping and trail riding this past weekend. husband and I had a nice chat about Wee...seems husband is also noticing more of Wee's inability to "lay out a process" to do something. *** I became more concerned about this when he started riding lessons and was completely not able to independently "steer" by pulling one rein without pulling the other. We worked thru that. While not completely alleviated, especially "in the real world" sitaution of riding, he's getting better. *** Then on a recent ride, he was in a buggy with a friend, and I rode up beside them to give him his medications. They were in 2 bottles, which I handed him in the buggy, along with a drink. He took the bottles and the drink. He took the lid off the drink and set the drink between his legs, kept the lid in his hand. He then took the lid off the first bottle, and then was stuck on what to do with the 2 lids he's now holding, and while he's trying to figure out what to do with the lids, he's spilling the pills onto the buggy floor. The lady beside him took the lid and helped him pick up the pills, and then he spilled the pills again when he actually took the one he needed and kept ahold of the bottle while taking a drink to wash the medication down. *** He still goes to the driver's side of the car or truck to get in, even tho I haven't had to put him in from that side in years. I often have to remind him "your side". *** If he finishes with a plate, glass, or bowl, he brings it to me. Doesn't matter if we are camping and it goes in the trash or the fire, or at home and it goes on the counter, and that the answer has been the same for years - he doesn't know what to do next. He'll bring it to me to hold, to which I reply "I'm not a table, take it to the ______". If he is carrying something and wants to pour himself a glass of milk, he will hand me whatever it is he is holding instead of put it on the table while he pours the drink. *** These are just a few examples. But are these motor planning problems? And if so, are my expectations too high for a child in the 5-8 age range?
