Thank you so much for sharing this article with Carolina (and Charlotte and Piedmont) Parent readers; I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in Cary/Chapel Hill who offers in-home therapy to kids, adults, and families affected by disabilities. Research and my own experiences with clients have convinced me that a client's home is often the best place for them to practice new skills and address challenges. I'm seeing that other counselors are recognizing what those in the allied health professions that you mentioned in your article have known for years; that you have to meet your clients where they're at, in every sense possible, if you want them to truly benefit from therapy. Thanks for highlighting professionals who are willing to work outside the box!
Thank you for your comment. We have had and continue to meet therapists that help Ben in the way he needs it. As he changes, matures and gains new skills, the therapists have developed with him. They have learned that win-win means they have to involve his needs and wants. At almost 13, he is an active participant in what he wants to do during his session!
