Therapy process

by Melanie
(South Jordan, UT)

I'm in the early stages of diagnosis and therapy with my 18 month old son.

I wondered through therapy and early intervention will he be able to lead a 'normal' life and attend public school with his peers?

I also wondered what is going to occur and what I should expect to happen over the next few years?

LOve them and squeeze them

my 3 1/2 yr old grandson was diagnosed a yr ago....he still is not talking, singing lots but we are frantically waiting for that first word....
sensory kids don't like being touched in certain places, just respect that and touch oh so gently each day in that place, they love to be cuddled and squeezed, pressure on the joints are great for them, it calms them...they have little quirks, who doesn't....there is so very much info now on this subject and it is becoming better known in the schools...Get him or her a good OT...continue to work with him at home...find his good points and always, always praise him for just the smallest thing.....yes, they do get better....we are praying that he will grow up to be a fine young man....he has grown is so many areas in just the last yr and a is amazing what physical therapy, speech and OT him in all the special ways each morning and each night and he will bring you so much joy!!!
