He has been in special ed and stimming pretty much his whole life.
He has been in special ed pretty much his whole life. He has been stimming most of his life, that was one big thing that we wanted to get stopped. He was shy and scared. He would just bury his head down or reach over to one of us in social situations. Maybe sometimes he would maybe mumble hi or whatever. He was usually scared and intimidated and didn’t really say anything.
The center, I love the center. The first day that they walked me through, they talked to me about how the thing worked and functioned. I was very impressed. I was very excited and really optimistic like I think I really found it this time. I think this is going to do it.
Now the stimming is down to next to nothing. I will notice he will occasionally do that, maybe out of habit. Then the only other thing I notice he will do here or there is he will get a little excited. He kind of does a couple of steps, like skipping, like jumping like a couple, two, three steps. If he gets a little excited, he will kind of do that. But that’s about it. It comes and goes.
They are wonderful; they really do care about the kids. They are about helping the kids. It’s not really a business, I mean it is a business but that’s not their full purpose. They are really there to help.
The biggest thing I would say is I do believe it works, but you got to have patience and put the time in. It’s going to pay off, it might not be in 3 months, it may not be 6 months, but there will be change. It will be better.
