It turns out you can.
I have two new therapies to try. One is NeuroReorg and the other is Theraplay.
Neuroreorg was recommended by a parent in a class we are taking and Theraplay I found through an article in the Good Housekeeping Magazine that my friend passed along to me.
I am excited about both, especially the Theraplay as the basis of the therapy is that we do it together and it is a FUN way of making those much needed connections. Many therapists work with the children alone, or you can undertake family counseling, but often it’s the child who attends most of the sessions, or at least that’s been our experience so far. I am looking forward to working with my son in a positive and fun way for a change. We of course interact at home, like most families we play games, we read together, do outside activities, that sort of thing but I think for us there were some steps that got missed along the way – some steps we need to revisit together. So I am excited, I know this is a marathon not a sprint but the first step needs to be taken to get going on any journey. We start next Wednesday.
Neuroreorg is a similar therapy to the kind we undertook in brain integration therapy x1 I think – our first appointment is in 2 weeks. This is supposed to also address areas of the brain that didn’t develop either on time or correctly.

I look forward to learning both of these therapies as we will be doing most of the ‘work’ between the two of us at home.
