a few weeks ago (has it really been that long?) i mentioned that i had some exciting news! i guess i didn’t want to mention the subject of said news, without doing some research about it myself. of course all of this just gave me ample opportunity to avoid posting altogether, and then it got postponed anyway and i was bummed….
anyway, i was excited because the squirt actually made it to the top of the list for ABA! those of you who know what ABA is, probably know that it is hard to come by, unless you have to ability to pay out-of-pocket for it.
so we were on the list, but had no idea how long it might take to get to the top! i was pleasantly surprised when our number came up sooner than i anticipated! the lady called and set us up for an appointment for an intake the following week! this was all very exciting, but she ALSO said that since she is coming all the way out to the country to see us, that if i applied for the squirm, she could maybe get him bumped up the list and see them both back to back! WOW!
unfortunately, the ABA therapist called the morning of our appointment and had to postpone for reasons of paperwork and hoop jumping.
i found it very disappointing, and my headachey, depressed self felt more set back that was really warranted. we only had to wait a few weeks after all. i was so just so looking forward to making progress towards….making progress?
anyway, the good news is that our day is up again this coming monday! woohooo!
i have been looking around on facebook to find a friend who has first hand experience with ABA to do a guest post here, and the same goes for any of my readers that have thoughts they want to share. not to promote of criticize it, but to learn more!
