Where Is The Line Between Letting Our Kids Be Themselves And Intervention?

Where Is The Line Between Letting Our Kids Be Themselves And Intervention?

I’ve always felt torn on this. We work toward these developmental goals all the time, and I like to let kiddo just relax and play his way as a break after we work on something. (Lying on the floor, eyes at ground level, pushing cars on the carpet.) It’s so hard to know the balance between making sure I’m offering interesting new activities (spurring growth) and just letting him do what makes him happy. I saw this IG post by Mary Lynch… read more

Does Anyone’s Child Tolerate Wearing A Mask Or Face Shield?

We are staying home as much as possible for a variety of reasons, but want to help our young child tolerate wearing a mask or face covering. Anyone have success here or tips? My mom made a face mask of his favorite cartoon but he wanted to carry it around like a purse.

Do You Need An IEP If You Homeschool?

I recall a former therapist saying she recommended it but I am blanking on why. Anyone here do that and why so?

Any Good Books For Parents On Therapy Life?

Any Good Books For Parents On Therapy Life?

I find the whole process of getting attached and then burned and the hunt for a new therapist so exhausting. Ive stopped counting but I think we are at over a dozen now. There was a period where someone was quitting every 3-4 months on year bc they were moving, going back to school, changing clinics, etc. Of course I realize this is part of life and all that, I just want to hear from someone who can relate and has put it into words!
