My oldest has always struggled with brushing her teeth. This simple task has been complicated by her sensory integration disfunction. I have done everything I know to do to help her learn, but felt like she was destined to have false teeth. The past six months, she wouldn't let me brush for her. I think because she knew a 12 y/o should be brushing her own teeth.
So, today, she had a cleaning. I was prepared to get the talk from the dentist about how her teeth were not getting cleaned. After the dentist dicussed some orthodontic issues, I asked the hygenist what areas of her teeth did G need to pay special attention. I was shocked to hear, "None. She has been doing a good job."
This is a day to celebrate. Right up there with the first day that she was able to write an "s" between the lines.
