Cooper got kicked out of therapy. Yup, you read that right. I can spin this two ways for you.
First, Cooper’s speech therapist decided that it would be best for Cooper to take a break. The sessions aren’t going well. Cooper hates it there…he loves his therapist…but he doesn’t want to do the stuff she’s doing…ever. It’s so frustrating. Trust me. I leave exhausted and sweaty and questioning everything we are doing. And also thinking, ‘is there ever a time where therapy is more detrimental than good???’ Part of me was actually happy with this break. We ALL need it.
Now, my other side (and a very small percentage…like 15%) is like, “WHAT THE HELL?!?!?” How can you stop therapy with a kid that needs it SO badly. Images of getting a tshirt that reads, ‘my kid got kicked out of therapy.’ came to mind. And now what? What’s next? School is our only hope. Can they kick him out too?
So, yeah, that’s my world right now.
School starts September 15th. Until then we will just do Occupational Therapy, which Cooper likes.
So, my glass half full ass is going to say, this is a good thing. A speech therapy time out for the month of August.
