Dear Noah:

Well...I am finding more and more out about physical and occupational therapy for you. Apparently our insurance once you are over 5 years of age....may not even cover ANY PT or OT unless it affects your every day living skills. You do have some problems with that as far as occupational therapy you MAY qualify. BUT I am just going to figure on you NOT getting any additional therapies.

SO...hum. Where does that leave any kids who are 5 years of age or older and still require PT, OT or anything else? Seems like they are not doing something right if just because you are over 5 you cannot receive PT or OT. I am over 5 and I can receive it. It all has to do with your autistic spectrum disorder so you SHOULD be entitled to receive it.

Sounds like we may have a rough road ahead trying to get the therapies approved. Meanwhile we will keep working on things at that may just be where you end up learning all these OT and PT therapy things anyway.

So frustrating. So happy you are too little to have to worry or wonder about these things.

ENJOY your sweet little life!
