Why I’d pull the plug on occupational therapy

      3 Comments on Why I’d pull the plug on occupational therapy

The boys had a great day at school. That’s not surprising but it’s always good to hear.

In a little while, I’ll be taking Elliott to occupational therapy, although he’s going unwillingly. He doesn’t like the idea of going and then worries about it until it becomes this huge obstacle.

Once he gets there, he ends up having fun and getting a good workout.

I wish he wasn’t so anxious about it each time because it’s like pulling teeth to get him out the door. If I didn’t think he’d benefit from it or he wasn’t cooperative while he was there, I’d probably pull the plug. There are so many kids waiting to get in and I don’t want to waste a slot that someone else could benefit from.

Elliott does benefit and is cooperative while he’s there. His therapist loves him and enjoys working with him.

For right now, it’s just a headache for me but it’s worth it as long as he’s getting something out of it.
