Do-It-Yourself Therapy

Keep Therapy Going Over School Breaks

By

You've fought to get in-school therapy in your child's IEP, and that's a great thing. The services are free, frequent, and take place where your child's already going to be. They're also hard to monitor, hard to enforce, and at the mercy of therapist's calendar and competing school priorities. Not to mention the fact that they stop dead during school vacations. Since breaks are unavoidable, you may have to step in from time to time to keep your child's progress going. These do-it-yourself techniques for four common school-based therapies may not be as good as the real thing, but at least, for a change, you're in control.
