We had an OT appt earlier this week, but saw a sub. She mentioned that our regular OT will probably evaluate him the next appt or 2 b/c he seems to be meeting all appropriate developmental milestones. He still has sensory issues out the wazoo, but that's not enough for his insurance to pay for OT. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
We also have our 6 month goal setting meeting w/ the early intervention people in a few weeks and they are going to go over our goals and what we've met, etc. Since he seems to be ahead in most things for his age now, we might not qualify anymore. Our DT loves him and wants to keep seeing him every 2 weeks, to work on his social skills, which are still a little off, but I'm not sure what the person in charge will say about that.<br><br>
Well, at least Damien still qualifies for OT, so I guess I can always ask his OT for tips on helping Liam w/ his sensory stuff like I do for Jake. Jake has lots of sensory issues as well.<br><br>
Can you believe that the same little boy who wasn't pointing or talking, had almost no eye contact, didn't really play, etc, is now talking in sentences, already potty learning, plays pretend, and is super super silly now, in just 5 mos? It's amazing to me!

Will your district/regional center not pay for it through early intervention?

No, he had a super good day the day he was evaluated by the early intervention OT. He dumped a box of cereal on the floor, stomped on it and then rolled in it just a half hour before she got here, so of course he was really calm and cooperative when she got here, so he didn't qualify for OT through EI. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I told her about the cereal incident and told her how he usually acts, but she said, sorry, I'm not seeing any of it. He didn't even w-sit when she was here, and that's how he sits 90% of the time unless I correct him.
