Do you give it before deciding your child just doesn't like their therapist?
DS1 had speech, a 15 minute break then PT. I like both therapist however DS1 repeatedly has not liked the SLP.
Today it was very noticeable. He would not look her in the face, he threw himself backwards out of her reach and the he tried to bite her. DS1 is not a biter, this is the first time I've ever seen him respond that way.
After his break he had PT. He had great focus, attended to her when she interacted with him and did what she asked. He did get grouchy when she pushed him, but he responded in his usual manner, lots of whining and some twisting to try to get out of it. He never even made a motion to bite her when she was forcing him to reach or stand.
Is this typical? Do I keep pushing him with the SLP to get used to working with people he may not enjoy. I personally like the SLP. Her son has Down Syndrome and is a bit older so I feel like she's a great fit for him, however, he seems to feel otherwise.
