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.

One thing at a time.. likely you could focus on the other things first and put off the neuropsych testing for a little while.. Its alot of information at once, but you are in expert hands with this doctor and he is getting to the bottom of it. You will find answers for Gavin. Just be patient.
