#SucessStory: Cody met his goal of brushing his teeth within 5 minutes of being cued with minimal aversions. This is awesome! Cody used to be unwilling to hold a toothbrush. He would stall and spend several moments playing in the bathroom before he would attempt to initiate the task. Lately, he has been brushing his teeth within 2 minutes of being asked, and he has shown increased skill with the task- he now covers all areas of his mouth. Keep up the good work, Cody!

Kendall is now able to wash and dry her hands independently! This is so awesome! When starting therapy, Kendall required assistance to wash and dry her hands in order to make sure they were clean. As she started to increase her independence, she sometimes needed reminders to get all parts of her hand. Now, Kendall remembers to wash and dry her hands and does so until they are squeaky clean! Her family even says they don't have to watch her wash her hands anymore. Way to go Kendall!!

When Maliyah first came to TheraTree she was very shy. She would provide one or two word answers during sessions when her therapist initiated the conversation, would hesitate to talk when others were around, and she would wait to ask for help until after her therapist offered. Now, when she arrives for therapy, she is excited to tell her therapist about the stuff she did during the week, reciprocates in the conversation for at least 10 minutes, and asks for help without any hesitation. Through encouragement and support, Maliyah is coming out of her shell and she is gaining more confidence every step of the way! We are so proud of you and your progress!
