I don't want to sound whiny but I have no idea how to hold done a job and get Ethan to all his therapies. He is supposed yo have 1 hour each of speech, occupational, and physical therapy over week plus 10 hours per week of aba therapy. And half day preschool.

 Not sure if a part time or night time job would work for you. That does make it harder when you are always going to appointments. Good luck! :)

Kaden has therapy all on one day.  He has speech, physical and occupational therapy on Tuesdays from 12-1:30.  We are done by 2.  He also has preschool from 9-11:30.  We were picking him up with his lunch, he was eating it on the way, and we would get home around 2:20 when we tried putting him down for a nap.  He stopped all naps in April.

Then, we found out two days before summer vacation that he had physical and speech therapy at his preschool.  They started that with him earlier in the year without notifying us...which they were supposed to do.  If we had known that, we wouldn't have been taking him to the next city over to get the therapy on Tuesdays. 

Maybe you can take him all in one day to get the therapy he needs?   Where we go they only give out half hour sessions, so and hour and a half isn't so long...I'm not sure how to do the other therapy he needs though.  2 hours of just that is a long time for a child.

Good Luck! :)

He gets an hour each of ot , st, and pt plus supposed to have 10 hours of aba. Even if he gets all 3 in school he still needs abs and he is solo little no way would he do 3 hours at a time. :(

Thanks. I applied for some part time jobs so hopefully I can get it and then work my way up to full time when he gets older.

I'm looking for part time. I could do evenings but I have health issues of my own so I can't do overnight :(

Whew.  That is a lot of therapy.  I'm sorry that I don't have any ideas.  I wish you luck.
