Put Emmett in his Power Tiger chair and he's off. He has moved way beyond circles and he can manipulate the joystick to get exactly where he wants to be ... which may not be where the adult with him wants or expects! In fact, he even demonstrates street safety. Towards the end of the video he is on the driveway and heading towards the street - but he stops and turns back! Is it because the driveway is a bit bumpy and he doesn't like it? Or is it because he has heard 'stop' so many times as he has gotten to that point on the driveway? Either way, it is impressive.
Emmett has come so far and in this blog we have certainly focused upon that. Playing catch/soccer by using his chair to capture the ball! Wow. This is literally the first time he's played with the beach ball. Waving bye to his mommy and daddy as they head out - just so cute! Yes, Emmett has come so far. The reality is pretty evident, however, that Emmett faces huge struggles - even as a toddler. However, rather than focus upon these very obvious challenges we love highlighting the fantastic things that we see. Accentuating the positive!
But being positive is a challenge for Emmett today, because his Power Tiger chair is malfunctioning and there's no one to contact on Labour Day weekend.
