This week, Roger had 1 1/4 therapy sessions. His last session was Tuesday morning. I received notice on Wednesday that his interventionist will be changed. His program manager set an appointment to discuss this with me Thursday morning. Thursday morning the second bomb was dropped — my program manager will be changed as well. There was no additional information: when the new manager and interventionist would begin, what his schedule would be, perhaps there’d be a sub in the meantime…Roger was very upset when she left. I think he expected her to play with him (as she sometimes does his therapy). I feel terrible that he is having a gap in services. I love to keep him scheduled. We both need it dearly.
This morning we got the answers: Roger will be on vacation from PIP therapy next week and his new interventionist will begin June 18th. I will meet the new program manager next Wednesday with Carley. Finally, his schedule will be inconsistent: M/W/Th: 8:30 sessions and T/F 10:45 sessions. The Tuesday/Friday sessions will be painful for him, since he awakes at 5:30. This means juggling around the babysitter’s schedule too. Tuesday and Fridays she will be working 7:45 am – 10:45 am. I am sure she is thrilled by the early morning hours!
I hope it is all for the best…Time will tell.
