In addition to what the school district is offering him (each therapy is about 30 min/week)...so he is obviously going to need more. We are doing PT, OT & SP privately through a hospital. We are also doing 6 sessions (2 hours each session) in October at an extensive rehab place...it will be about $2000 for the 6 sessions (nope, no insurance help). Yes, it is VERY expensive...but we have to do this while he is fresh from his "S's"!!! If we feel like this has helped...and he needs more...we MIGHT do the 3 week course: 4/hrs day & 5 days a week...that is $6000!!! We will need to do some bake sales just for that! But, this is the only place that has the neuro-suit and some other stuff "normal therapy" doesn't offer. We took a tour and were pretty excited to start it! Cole's friend, Bertrand went for a tour...Bertrand is in a wheelchair...they had him FREESTANDING on his knees in 30min...this is incredible for Bertrand...we hope lots of good things will happen for Bertrand!!!
(yesterday Cole did A LOT of FIRSTS....YES FIRSTS!!!)
He jumped on the couch for the 1st time!
He played with a ball for the SECOND TIME!!!
He figured out how to lift his leg up!
He found his TOES for the FIRST TIME!
He climbed on the couch since his surgery.
He was so excited he got up ALL by his self!
His head is healing quite nicely!
oh...today he climbed over my leg because it was in the way!!!
