As well as she did during therapy several factors have lead us to be Feeding School drop outs! A few major factors being our new insurance doesn't cover Behavioral Health Services at CHOP, I was having some major disagreements with the feeding team at follow ups in terms of the direction of Anna's care, and doing separate "bite" sessions with Anna when I had a new baby, a house on the market, and a 4yr old, and, and, and, and seemed just this side of impossible.
We are just about to start our 4th week of school. Ben is doing great and if Anna was a little less of a loose canon things would REALLY be going smoothly. She is a big distraction. Insisting on doing school with us, but not wanting to do anything planned. I am torn between laying down the law and making her do that crafts and little alphabet activities I prepare for her and just letting her flit about as she will. If she is going to be so difficult why should I waste time planning for it?? LOL
The only area Ben has struggled with in school is Religion. Basically the curriculum calls for me to read him sections of the Golden Children's Bible and then the next day he is to retell me the story and I write it out and then he illustrates it. He had such a hard time with the recall part of this. I am not sure if the subject matter was boring, the language/vocab too advanced, the concept itself too much for a 4yr old or what. So we just dropped the religion and instead we are just focusing on Catholic Treasure Box stories/activities and saint stories and picture books etc. So far this is much better. We will either revisit it in the summer as an extra or just skip it and that is that.
