Yep- depending on the exact type of therapy. For feeding I might go back, but most times the child goes back alone. Ask if you can sit in, or listen at the door if you are nervous. They should be fine with that. Good luck!
Yep, exactly! If you don't like it, talk to her about it:)
Quoting Elyssa414:After a certain age, most kids go into therapy without their parents. Usually they work harder without you there, in my experience.
Yes, i have been fortunate enough to talk to my son's therapists and allowed to go back. My son has trust issues and doesn't always feel comfortable when he is back there doing therapy. Just talk with the therapist and let them know how you feel.
Yes, the kids work harder for them if their parent is not there to "save" them. Our OT is shares rooms and activities with other therapists but each child has their own therapist. Most are women but they do have 1 man but he I would trust him with my daughter as he has worked with my son for several years and my son loves him.
If you are uncomfortable with them going back alone you can request to sit in or "shadow" them as they work....go back after they do so your child doesn't see you and follow them through it all.
