|"The waterfront. Beautiful blue skies, or crashing waves. |
Just like Jacob."
We've been patiently waiting for a new intake meeting for a while, but with Jacobs poor morning behaviour at school as of late, we were beginning to become anxious. Our primary concern is that at this point in his life, Jacob may need medication to help him function throughout the day.
I'm sure that lots of people have put their kids on medication with great results, but for us, it's a bit of an apprehension. But one thing parents of a child with an ASD have to be willing to do is, try anything. So Shannie and I have decided that should his new doctor think that medication could be beneficial, we'll give it a try. Even if we try the meds, they're not necessarily permanent. But if the doctor say that more ABA therapy is better, then we'll have no choice but to immerse ourselves deeper.
All we want is for Jacob to be happy, which is likely what any parent wants. The scary thing is not having the certainty that we provided our parents in our own childhoods. I voice in my head sounds like a broken record, but we must remain positive. Because even before Jacob was born, we promised to do anything to help him. So that's what we're going to do.
