Need advice

DS has been in therapy for about 2 months he gets 60 mins once a week from EI. His head banging and hand flapping have grately improved and his eatting is a work in progress. Those and speech are part of his goal list. He has no improvment with his speech and his therapist expressed some concern and she's not satistfied with what he is giving her. She has not worked on anything but speech. But I have been working with him on all his goals. He has no official diagnosis but she says she thinks he has sensory and proprioceptive disorders. She believes no autism cause he initiates conversation(blabbers). She does seem to be confused on where to place him or how to help him. So I'm planning on having a conversation asking her if he would benefit from private/out of pocket therapy. I'm hoping her ego doesn't get in the way and she has my childs best intrest. Just feeling very discouraged and sad about the whole thing cause I wanna help him so much but I just don't know what to do. I welcome any advice or questions cause I need help and I don't have any family to get advice from.

Re: Need advice

  • Please remind me...have you had a developmental pedi eval?

    No

    Honestly I really have no one to get advice from. All the info I have is from research I've done online. So I don't know whats the proper steps or what he need. I just wanna help him. Kinda in that despirate state again after hearing her concern.

  • You should not be the only one working on all of his goals.  I'm not sure what all his issues are, but you may also want an OT eval.  OT can work on the sensory stuff.

    Also, just to let you know, our EI bills our insurance first so if we were to do private therapy, our max number of sessions would be eaten up by our speech through EI.  I hope that makes sense.  If you are willing to pay 100% out of pocket, this isn't an issue.
