I was wondering if I could get some advice from you lovely people out there who have walked this road before me. In a couple of weeks we are having our Review with the school district on where Ian is at in terms of his progress in therapy. The main goal of this meeting is to determine what his therapy should consist of in terms of frequency etc. Ian's physical therapist has recommended that we switch from an every other week meeting to once a month. She said that Ian is doing so well in terms of strength and flexibility. My thoughts on this are that yes, he is doing well with his strength level but his two cousins who are ten and twelve days younger than Ian are sitting up on their own, Ian is not. Ian also still prefers to keep/turn his head to the right due to torticolis (spelling?) Ian also tested two months behind on the Hawaii Standards Test in the area of fine motor skills (by the way I don't like this test. It compares Ian with typical kids. Well, he's NOT a typical kid. Why should he be compared to one!?! Anyway, you can tell I'm passionate about that!)
To be honest part of me would welcome a once a month visit from Ian's team of therapists. They come on Monday mornings, ugh! Mondays are not good for me. I'd rather stay in my pj's all morning than clean the house for a therapy session! Also, one of the therapists isn't that great with Silvi. Silvi has said numerous times, "I don't like her!", when I mention that she is coming over. The lady is also very long winded!
The main point is that I want to do what is best for Ian. I'm just not sure what that is at this point. Any advice you could give me would be most welcome. Thanks!
