For anyone that has had A.B. A. in your home

have you ever been not pleased with one og the line therapists
and what happened

i have 3 line therapists
one of them is so nice
but just not up to par
and the least "skilled"
i have given it more than 2 months
and said something to the head therapist yesterday
she is coming today to talk to me about it

she asked if we can work on it before we replace her, so sounds like i have all the pull if i decide she is not working
i said, yes- can you train her more and see if you can get her to improve
but sadly i think she "just does not get it"

any situations you had
appreciate input

  • we had home therapists
    dont remember what they were called it was a while ago. one male one female
    the male kept checking me out
    i had no problem asking to have him replaced.

    IMHO- doesnt matter why youre uncomfortable only that you are

  • I hope you had a good meeting with the head therapist. Did she want to hear from you in detail about your issues? Did she give you any feedback that was helpful, or that left you feeling hopeful about the prospect of this being addressed positively? (Which I totally think is possible, if there is clarity about the issues & openness/receptivity on the part of the professional.)
    Just hope you had a good experience.

  • We haven't had therapists for my stepson in the home, but we did switch him to a different therapist once because although his first one was nice, she wouldn't try to draw him out or push him to talk. So we were spending a lot of money for her to sit and watch him build with Legos on her office floor a few times a month. Just remember, the therapists work for you. If you aren't satisfied with their services, you have the right to request a different professional. Good luck.
