There is nothing in the world I hate more then trying to coordinate Ben’s Early Intervention schedule. All in all, he has 6-7 (soon to be 7-8) therapies a week…all for 1/2 hour each. There of course are rules, you can’t have more than 2 therapies a day regularly scheduled, 3 with a makeup. And we need to fit in naps and gym class. I understand that things come up and more people can’t always keep their appointment times, but in reality, one of our therapists was canceling and rescheduling so much that I had to request a different therapist. I also didn’t count on that apparently “summer schedules” are big. Why a full time therapist would need to change house in the summer, I don’t really know. Maybe the other families change their times? I’m not quite sure but all I know is it throws everyone off.
We decided this week to try and transition Ben down to 1 nap a day. We haven’t yet decided, but if we do put him in preschool in the fall, that occurs in the mornings and he needs to be down to one nap a day. It also, quite frankly, makes our lives easier to only need to be close to home for one chunk of time a day. So immediately upon deciding this, one therapist requested her summer times to be directly in the middle of the new nap time. She was understanding about me not being able to accommodate that, but the 12 discussions that occur to work out the new time are really wearing on me.
