Just had to share a quick post to share about the phone call I had this morning!
How ironic that 5 minutes before the call I’d said to my mum:
“We’ve been waiting to see Occupational Therapy now for a year, no appointment through yet.”
And a few minutes later I get the call to say Lou will see a Paediatric Occupational Therapist on Friday 9th September! I’m so happy I could cry! We’ve waiting a year for this help and there are not many Paediatric Occupational Therapists in our county.
I’m hoping the 9th of September brings some well sort after advice and practical activities to help ease some of Lou’s sensory sensitivities that cause the frequent meltdowns, anger and frustration. This couldn’t have come at a better time as we’re currently having a bad day of demands, shouting and hitting me – now, finally we can get the help we’ve been longing for.
This appointment comes only 3 days before we have a multi – agency at Lou’s new school so hoping everyone will work together to ensure that she gets the help and support she needs.
I’ll will report back on how this appointment goes !
Thanks for reading 🙂
