I can't sleep and I am hoping my brain is making a bigger deal out of this than it will be but I had an unpleasant experience at the rehab center with the Occupational Therapist (OT) today. She came to me after and showed me a list of about 20 aggressive/inappropriate behaviors, with pictures by them, that htey had spent the session developing. She had him sign a "contract" that he woudl not do any of those behaviors even to me before or after therapy and if he did then he is suspended from the center...Occupational Therapist (OT) and speech for a WEEK. She presents it to me in the waiting room on the way out and tells me the plan. It is so bad on so many levels I didn't know where to start. I tried to explain that a plan like this is too overwhelming and will increase his stress. that suspension from school has been tried for ten full years and if a plan like this were to ever work then it would have by now. I tried to explain that I am fine with a plan but it needed to be an appropriate plan. She got defensive, said she was a professional (uggg how condescending...so I said well I am and OLDER professional AND I am his mom) and then she said well our clinic supervisor said we had to do it. I said well then we need a meeting. I feel so let down. This kind of thing always backfires and his behaviors increase due to the stress. I have switched my whole life to pick him up at school because he goes to therapy after and so I get a tiny bit of gas money if he goes to therapy. WIthout that I am down another 200 dollars a month since he can't come home on the bus right now due to behavior concerns. If he is gone week after week, which WILL happen, then I will be paying for all of that too. The worst is that his schedule MUST be consistent. He needs it to be or he falls apart and now everyone suffers in every setting. I tried to reason but she was just rude and I kept thinking, here I go again. I thought I trusted you....this is a REHAB center where they specialize in BRAIN INJURY!!!!! I am beside myself. I wrote an email to his psychologist there and asked for advice. I am just sick over it and can't sleep. It feels to familiar. I couldn't eat but feel nauseated and know I should eat. I got Mc. D with Q and could only get a tiny bit down. ICK I dont want to go through this again.
