This handsome boy, Gavin, has PDD-NOS. He receives occupational and speech therapy, and also sees a Behavioral Support Specialist. When asked if she would recommend this course of treatment, his parents answered with a resounding "Yes!!" They also recommend that you get on waiting lists as quickly as you can.

Tristan has Spastic Quadriplegia CP, along with various other diagnoses. Tristan has been working with traditional physical, occupational, and speech therapists. He has also had botox, as well as hip dysplasia and ear tubes. His Mom, Tammie, has been happy with this course of treatment and would recommend it to others. Her advice:
I think you need a doctor that will sit down and have an open conversation with you. Freely ask questions, do your own google search (but keep in mind it's not all good info) try it out.

Nay has Cerebral Palsy. He has been following a traditional course of Physical, Occupational, Speech and Vision Therapy. His Mom, Dawn, says that she would recommend this course of treatment, but that she wishes she knew more about better options for special children.
My son use try "taping" in physical therapy and running on a treadmill. I do wish we could have continued with the treadmill so much more. I think it really helped. Also, they recommended botox for his left side but we never go the chance and I wish we had looked further into it.. might have helped but not sure. I do recommend trying as much as possibly without pushing too hard, little ones get pushed to hard and sometimes it creates a set back. My son also has Hydrocephalus and uses DAFO's on his legs.
Dawn has also recently started keeping a blog, so go show your support at A Special Momma.
