If you watch Haiden run around, play soccer, play golf, or jump off furniture you would never know how much work it is for him. Haiden struggles with motor planning everyday. We take for granted how easy it is to brush our teeth, tie our shoes, button our shirts, take a shower, write our name, and eat with utensils. For Haiden, theses tasks take a lot of concentration and effort. The more independent he becomes the more I notice the little struggles. It can be very frustrating when our 2 year old is able to wash and dry herself but our 5 year old can't. So my energy is now focused on helping Haiden improve in this area. I've read that some supplements like good fats can really help. Are there any other parents struggling with this as well? I would love your feedback!
