Thoughts on Therapy

I didn't know what to expect. The session I was in on yesterday was Jack's session. David reported that Summy's session went really well, but I felt frustrated watching Jack. He flitted from thing to thing so fast I wondered how much he was getting out of it. He kept telling our OT "no!" over and over. He seemed resistant, and I felt like he didn't get much out of it.

Then the boys woke up from their nap at 5 pm. Yes, you read that right. Actually, I woke them at 5! Jack was inconsolable. Our OT had warned us that it might be more like an unraveling before the process of reorganizing their little brains begins. For Jack, he was overwhelmed. We began the Wilbarger Brushing Protocol which has also overwhelmed Jack. Summy 1. Ate spaghetti with his hands for the first time in months 2. asked to swing. (He only swung for the first time ever a week ago 3. Sang at bedtime with us (He stopped singing a few months ago.)

I cannot believe it.

I am SO glad it is going "well". I mean despite the difficulty of it, it sounds like you are seeing results! I hope it continues for your sweet little boys!
