Gracie First Speech Session

Today we had Gracie's first Speech Therapy session. First off I wasn't crazy about our new therapist. She was kind of weird on the phone and didn't call to say she was coming until yesterday.

When she came she was a little abrupt and not terribly friendly. She didn't ask me any questions at all about what she is doing or saying. When I tried to talk about what my concerns were or what Gracie is/isn't doing she kind of brushed me off. She brought toys and every time one of the girls put it in their mouth she made me clean it (hello, take them home and wash them). At one point she reprimanded Gracie for not cleaning up. I had to hold my tongue. I'm pretty sure my job is the parenting and her job is the ST.

To put the icing on the cake she told Abby that she was whiny (which she was, but still) and commented on her eyes being slightly crooked. Guess that eye surgery was for nothing. :(

I am just hoping it gets better next week.

I'm sorry about that session! If I were you I'd give her one more shot and then I would ask for a new therapist. They should listen to the parents and you should work together! Hugs!

Gosh, if we didn't live so far away from each other I would SWEAR this was the exact same speech therapist that came over to our house for Al.ex 3 times, and then we FIRED her. (posted on my private blog about this a few weeks back). Our new SLP is SUPER and I'm so glad we pushed to get someone else.

I hope you don't need to, but fight to get someone that gels with you and Gracie if you have to!!!

Well, the comments she said about Abby...that would of been it for me. You don't deserve to feel like crap after someone who is supposed to be there helping, is talking down to your kids, and not listening to you. That makes me so mad you had to put up with that!!! Hugs!
