The past few weeks Nicholas hasn't done well in therapy. He screams and arches out of the PT positions. His therapists have always said the older kids are the hardest because they can fight back to not do the therapy. They said babies are easiest because they can put them in the positions and they can't get out of them. I wonder if he is getting to the age of being a difficult therapy patient. We do the therapy on our own too, the therapist teaches us what to do and we do it everyday. Speech is the only therapy that he cooperates in. He is doing well too. He is mimicking sounds. Of course he isn't saying the same thing we are but if we say something he will make a noise back- that is very good. On Monday he had an audiology appointment at MUSC. The audiologist put him in the sound booth to test sounds and what he can hear. He responded to all but the very quiet sounds. Yay! She put three new volumes on his implant and was more aggressive with the increases. He cries harder when we turn it on but easily calms down.
