For many kids with RS, spinning is a part of their life. They spin when they stand still. They spin as they walk. They spin when they sit on the floor. Like a tiny little top. Abby is one of those children. The girl needs to spin in order to regulate her body (at least that's how I understand her explanations). I don't mind her spinning but we do try to keep it to a minimum at school so she doesn't distract others.
We have tried MANY therapies and strategies to get the spinning under control but have had little success. While I wish this post was written to outline a strategy that worked, it isn't. :D Instead I am happy to say we found a place where she can spin and whirl and turn and twirl until her little heart (and brains) content.
She is the twirliest, most accomplished spinner in the entire ballet class!
