Transitions

  • When we think of making a transition it’s usually walking from the living room to the kitchen. Eating to watching tv. Some transitions are bigger though. Summer to Fall. Fall to Winter. One of the next big transitions for Seamus is a change in therapists. He’s been using Early Intervention for ages birth to three. Once he turns three we will be hitting the metaphorical reset button and starting over. Kids with autism struggle with transitioning from activity to activity. Hit the reset button on their schedule and you’re opening a door for all hell to break loose. Today we had one of our last speech sessions with his current therapist. We’re definitely going to miss seeing his current support system. They all genuinely care about these kids. It’s taken the better part of the year for him to get comfortable but he gives hugs and kisses and thanks his supporters before they leave. I’m nervous to start fresh. For now I suppose I’ll just sit back and watch the magic that happens between them for a few more weeks.
