Music Therapy & More
What benefits has it brought to you and your family?
It's helped our son discover an interest in instruments and music.
If I could go back in time and talk to myself the day we got the diagnosis I would say...
Breathe. Take one day at a time. There will be bad days but there will be great days too. You will feel overwhelmed a lot but, believe it or not, you will get through it.
The hardest thing for me to learn was...
Be patient. There will be progress. It will be at his own pace, but progress will be made.
The worst thing about parenting a child who struggles is...
The worry. All parents worry about their child but it's magnified. It can be all consuming at times.
We'd love to know if you have any go-to resources.Save
Talking to other parents. Finding out what was helpful to them and what their child benefited from and enjoyed.
