You are not just a mom! Don’t let others intimidate you into questioning what you know is working or not working for your child. Trust yourself and keep moving forward.
I have to admit that sometimes I outwardly went along with the therapist’s plans for my child (shhh, don’t tell her; she really was a good therapist). But when I saw it was resulting in much more frustration on both my child’s part and my part on a daily and even hourly basis, driving us both to tears and at the same time not resulting in any progress, I set the plans aside and did other things. We kept the therapists’ weekly appointments to document my son’s progress, and so I could keep in mind what he was supposed to be working on. We tried the therapist’s recommendations a few times over the course of the week instead of every hour and see how he responded, if he responded at all. From the therapy, I learned ways to help him when he was ready for it, and markers by which to measure his progress. But overall, he wasn’t ready for it. It was helpful, but it wasn’t what he needed most at the time.
