She did give me some suggestions on things to do now. One was getting a beanbag chair, and setting up an area he can retreat to when he's getting anxious and overwhelmed. Also, a few things such as squishing him with pillows, and big bear hugs. I asked about maybe adding occupational therapy, since her suggestions were of the OT sort. We're going to talk about it on the 9th, at our next session with her and the speech therapist.
She also mentioned that her opinions were just that- HER opinions. And she really didn't have *too* much advice in regards to his "everything-has-to-be-in-a-certain-order-or-he-freaks" behavior , since she had very little experience with that. She told me that I always have the options of seeing the developmental pediatrician, like our ped. recommended. But suggested waiting 6 months or so before making that decision.
For the past year, I've been either been feeling as if I'm not doing enough for Isaiah, or I'm over-reacting, making something out of nothing. And... I still feel that way. *sigh* This parenting gig is tough. :(
