My son is 16 months, and goes to physical therapy twice a week. Next week is the last week for home visits, then he starts going to the school they have. I think he is just too young, I think it might be me being nervous more than anything else. They don't allow parents to sit in and watch. Its from 8 to 11 3 times a week. Am I overreacting about not wanting him to go? They said it is supposedly helping them more without the parents. But Im still a wreck about itAnswer Question

Quick question, are you in the room during the home visits? How does your son react if you are? Does he turn to you if he doesn't want to do something? I only ask because it may be the reason they may not want parents in the treatment room is because of what you said. . . they only want mom and dad and may not listen to the therapist or do what they want him to do. I toss that out there because I'm just trying to see a possible other side.
As the parent I would want to observe a session or two and I would want to visit the school well before my child is supposed to start to try and get him acquainted with it. Also I would want to know the exercises they are doing so I can also help the progress at home.
