MAYA II is always very happy to be put into action and loves to be a part of whatever is going on around her. She is a super-fast learner and remembers where we left off last. Maya has made lots of improvement this month. Currently she is bunking with her fluffy golden retriever buddy, Saffron. They really enjoy each other’s company. Also snuggling in with them from time to time is Latte, who really appreciates using a friend as a pillow for her head!

  • Skills being learned: Carrying and holding dumbbell, putting varied other objects in her mouth and using the right amout of pressure to hold the item, ‘button’, ‘push’, ‘tug’, ‘go through/back’, ‘turn around’, ‘behind’, ‘up.’

  • Possible behavior challenges: Excitability, self-control, aversion to holding/carrying metal objects in her mouth.
