Step 5 - The Scout Master decides our son can practice this skill with a hatchet instead of a full-sized axe from now on. . . .
(And, the next time our son says, "I almost cut my leg off at Scouts today," I'll ask more questions and won't think he's exaggerating.)
Yep, some motor skills just aren't gelling for him yet.
We told this story to his OT at school this morning, during his CSE meeting, when she told us his visual-motor coordination is lacking. Yep, we've noticed. (Since he walked into garbage cans at the mall when he was 2, we've noticed. That's one reason he had over a year of vision therapy, and receives OT now. Times like this make me wonder if PT might not be a good idea too.)
