My husband and I are depserately trying to figure out what is best for our little one! We have a very serious shortage of speech therapists in Helena, MT and we did finally get him into one twice a week. Our little guy just turned 2 in December. He is really responding well to Speech therapy, but we were just informed that the Hospital has implemented a new policy so that they can see/treat more people on the waiting lists. So, our little boy will receive therapy for 3 months then go off therapy for 3 months and then back on for 3 months, etc.... He really is reponding well to this therapist and really likes going to therapy. We did however, make it to the top of the list for another therapist who we hear is good, but takes a totally different approach. I tried to set up an interview with the new therapist, but she won't give interviews, but it was her opinion that continued therapy would be best. How on earth are we supposed to know if continued therapy with an unknown (to us) therapist is better than the 3 month on 3 month off therapy he is currently in. If you have any thoughts on the matter, we would really really appreciate them.
Which is better for our little boy with appraxia.....therapy for 3 months, then no therapy for 3 months, then another 3 months of therapy. Or continued therapy once a week?
Any advice or thoughts are welcome.
