If you could afford it or more were available in your area, would you send them to even more therapies?

Yes. We actually ended our 4 year relationship with our ABA/therapy center in August and are on a waiting list for a new place and I'm getting pretty anxious about getting him back into something. On the bright side, our insurance agreed to pay for Ben's Chiropractic care up to 20 visits.

Yes, we are exploring options now. I have held off on therapy after school because he is just too tired to hold it together. But now he is not handling school well and I think he needs more help.

Not more but diffeeent therapies. Ones not covered by insurance. I would love to try Neurofeedback and brain gym.

Well getting Sam to participate was always the kicker...
You can lead a horse to water....
So maybe like Brittaney, DIFFERENT and maybe REALLY EXPENSIVE EXPERTS therapies since semi-expensive hasnt done the trick.😜

I don't think I could. My two have 9 hours of therapy a day amongst 7 different therapies. Plus my oldest has sports daily and now other trip has two nights of activities. I don't have time for what we do now. And I'm not sure what else we could be doing. I'd like better therapies with more progress for my daughter though.

My oldest dd also has private ot and speech on Thursdays. My younger dd has speech for an hour twice a week. We are booked!

My son was diagnosed with mild depression at age 7 but he is doing very well at age 9 now.  No need now for therapy but he has insurance to go in the future if needed.
