Re: Preemie and OT questions...

My experience with OT (DS was a 34 weeker drug baby) is that you work hard on it now so that in 6-8 weeks, he will get it. Therapy always gave us a ton of homework for DS to do 3 times a day. It was the only way he got it.

But...developmental peds told me at 4 months that he would never walk. He rides a bike and plays soccer now. It took a very aggressive OT, PT, and doing the homework a LOT, but we made it.

Hooray for having an aggressive OT!
