Fed Up and Time for a Change

Every Wednesday we see S for Applied Behavioral Analysis therapy and lately it's becoming an idea that shows itself to be a bad one. In the beginning I was not given a choice of therapist or a choice when we changed therapists. I've never been fond fond of this therapist because she's always a few minutes late and doesn't really listen which results in my having to repeat the same things each and every week. I have asked her to assist with behaviors in the past because either I found them irritating or because I don't allow them in my house and she has refused.

I would need a therapist that listens and knows without being told that it is overstepping their bounds to parent other people's children. When we first started this the $55 an hour came out of my pocket and we could only afford one hour a week instead of the two that they try to make a minimum for the children. Then financial aid kicked in and we got two hours a week at no charge. A little later they in acted a $3 per week copay which means I know spend anywhere from $12 to $15 a month as a copay. Well, I got to thinking about it and if it weren't for the financial aid aspect then I would have gotten rid of this particular therapist a long time ago.

Maybe I'm just a bit knick picky but if it's not your child then you have no right to parent that child. I don't even believe in grandparents rights so I sure as hell don't believe in the rights of strangers. Some of the things that I do with my child are a financial issue and others are simply because I don't believe in those things. Since we got Theresa's diagnosis I've only been asked what she can do and never once what she was allowed to do. Since the end goal is to make a child that was once non-verbal with no social or play skills completely independent then I really everyone to be on the same page.

Left

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“Yes.”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
