Is this appropriate?
My 2.5 year old has been seeing an OT for about 10 weeks now. MY husband and I decided to see use a private OT for our daughter(meaning we have not gone through our insurance, we did not want her to be labeled in medical record). We did this because our OT is a family acquaintance. She sees her on her free time and will not accept money from us. We are very fortunate to have her. Our daughter has a few symptoms of SPD but our OT is confident that she doesn't have SPD. Just some sensory abnormalities. Since we began with OT we've seen remarkable improvements. Here is the problem:
My mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law have developed a friendship with OT. They invite her to family dinners and they even invited her to Disney on Ice show we went to last Saturday. Yesterday at my daughters therapy OT couldn't get my daughter to engage at all. She wouldn't use her words,play,or make eye contact. I think OT's relationship has crossed boundaries now and my daughter doesn't think of her like a teacher anymore. My family thinks I'm overreacting. Am I?
