We met with a speech and therapy center yesterday. Everyone, doctors therapists, us is in agreement that Sammy needs more speech and possibly some Occupational Therapist (OT). The school district is testing him at the end of july and doesnt begin therapy until school begins. In toddler time that is forever and a day away. We met with these people and at first I really liked them but the more I thought about it the worse I thought about it. They were obsessed with sensory issues. To clarify, Sammy officially has: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Anxiety, Speech delay, develpmtl delays, and behavior disorder not otherwise specified. First I said, did you leave anything out? Sammy is obviously quite quirky. We want to focus on the purpose at hand and get him talking properly and clearly, and teach him functional things like how to hold a spoon and fork the correct way, work on his fine motor skills things like that. They were so focused on sensory that nothing else will be accomplished. Brushing him for 30 minutes before we go out is NOT going to make him listen better and rage less. I am afraid if we do this, Sammy is going to be quite oppositional to do things like hold the spoon correctly...and they are going to say "Oh he is on sensory overload lets put him in the swing for 30 minutes" It will ruin everything we have gained behaviorly. Not to mention that inusrance will cover $30.00 of the $975.00 I dont know what to do with him anymore!
