The other day, a neuromotor researcher asked me to send her a list of all the therapies we are doing as well as the specialists we regularly see. With all the traveling we did and changes Solly went through in the last year, this seemingly simple request was not so simple! After our year of change, in my mind, we really pared down the number of therapies Solly did each week, but our schedule is still pretty full. The biggest difference is that we have more therapies that are fun for Sol and fewer that require him to sit still in a chair.
After racking my brain, here is the list that I sent her:
Hippotherapy – twice a week, once with a PT and once with an OT
Aquatic Therapy – PT
Every 6 – 8 weeks:
Starting in June 2017, we dropped regular PT in favor of the intensive model. We’ve done therasuit therapy twice and are gearing up to do 3 weeks of neurosuit and Cuevas Medek Exercises (CME) in March. We’ve got another week of therasuit on the books for June and are tentatively heading to Virginia Tech for another month-long intensive some time this Fall.
We are currently undergoing our second round of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
