More feedback

Some feedback from an OT on my little girl with shyness and Visual perceptual issues: (Wiki Stix are sticky pliable/flexible small like, line thingies)
 
Wiki stix are wonderful. Try them to figure out the maze in the Little Pony Book rather than drawing a line.
And instead of purchasing raised line paper, try using the wiki-stix to create the lines on blank paper (or lined paper)…I hate the idea of you spending your private money on your fieldwork patients. It's wonderful and generous but I would recommend that you set boundries for yourself…
Regarding her shyness, perhaps use a “third person”–a little doll, pony, teddy, whatever–that speaks to her and asks her questions, rather than you speaking to her directly and she speaking directly back to you. It is amazing how much easier it is to relate to a puppet..
