Are you friggin kidding me? I’m a firm believer in there’s no such thing as a stupid question however, that is a stupid question. Of course kids with #Autism benefit from a variety of therapies.
You may be detecting that I’m a little fired up right now. Well, you’re right.
We received a nice letter from the insurance company telling us that Emmett will no longer receive occupational therapy.
This is the second such letter this year. I raised holy hell over the last one and got the denial overturned but it seems like they just never learn. They think that because Emmett hasn’t progressed to a normal level that he will never progress.
Pardon my french but that is bullshit.
Don’t tell me anything about budgets and cost, I get that. However, I also understand that if we short change our children, who are we and what have we become.
Emmett is absolutely worth it, just as every single one of your kids is.
Emmett has made so much progress. However, when OT was pulled earlier this year, he quickly regressed.
This is the last thing we needed. However, this will not go unchallenged.
For anyone wondering, this is what a letter that tells you your child will never achieve, looks like.
