Those of you who have motor skills issues, who are you seeing? We used to go to Hemispheres till about a year ago. checking to see if there are other better options. INPP said they will start only at 6.5y old
Skewiff...I am glad we went to inpp (we also did ait too) prior to TH as I feel they both really helped ds but the greatest strides have been made since he started TH. Tbh the neuro exercises of inpp are quite similar to those of TH. I guess I would say that inpp (and similar) help with one area of difficulty. Whereas TH is a more rounded approach.
Thanks for the feedback everyone. skewiff - We were quite happy with Hemispheres actually. Used them for over a year. However they were very far from where we live and our OT there left. The new OT wasnt as confident with my daughter.
We are - think they are fantastic - huge improvement in DS.
Why did you stop with hemispheres?
What I would say, after DS seeing a number of OT's (before hopscotch) is that you need to be seeing a difference in your child by about the3 month mark - and not just seeing that they can do things better in therapy, but that they can start to use those skills outside of the therapy environment. HTH
I think we started hemispheres before my daughter was ready for any reflex integration. Don't know how to explain it. She did start walking after a year but I don't know of it was due to the intervention or it just happened.
The reason we stopped is that our OT left. I didn't quite like the new OT.
But I resumed the body brushing and joint compression recently and my daughter allowed me to do it. To be honest, I am wondering if a DIY approach is possible/sensible. We are already spending lots of ABA now.
