Grace started Conductive Education this week. (you can watch the video on the website for an overview of the program) The regular program is an intensive 4 week, 5 days per week, 4 hour per day program and is quite expensive. So, we are currently doing an abbreviated version of the program to see if this is something we think will be beneficial to Grace. Insurance does not cover it and our schedule is already pretty packed, so I really need to be convinced this is the best thing for Grace before we make the investment of time and money. We are going on Wed and Thurs for 2 1/2 hours for 4 weeks. The first day consisted of 2 hours of screaming (Grace not me). I had been told this was to be expected. The second day was much better...there was crying but only about an hour and it was not the screaming we had the day before. So far, I'm just confused. They don't want Grace to wear her braces, they don't want to use a reverse walker but a want to use a forward walker...this is all different from what our PT and OT want us to do. I haven't talked to our PT about how the past 2 days have gone and am very interested in what he has to say. So, as I said...I'm confused. More info all off this later.
Sorry...not photos...we've been BUSY!!!!
