We are doing half hour sessions as his therapy is quite intensive - half an hour gives us about 23 minutes of therapy and 7 minutes of report writing. We recieve a short little report each day about what was practiced and what we will be working on next and what he needs to continue working on. We are encouraged to watch the session so we can continue working with him throught the week. I am a stay at home parent right now so I can devote a lot of time to this. We wanted our son to have continuous therapy through the summer months as he really needs it.
My therapist said that she wants us to watch and work with her because she's teaching us the skills but it's us who have to work with him on it daily. She said essentially her job is to train herself out of a job. She's been giving us cards to work on and we can photocopy them! Also ideas on how to work on the words - our son is highly motivated by games!!!
