I briefly mentioned in my last post that as Alyssa’s anxiety has decreased, we have noticed Courtney seeming a little more regulated. I truly feel we were in this dis-regulated state as a family these last few months. Now that Alyssa is more regulated, we are seeing some positive changes in Courtney too.
During these last few months we had to stop all therapy goals for Courtney that worked on peer play with Alyssa because neither of them could handle it. This past week, per Alyssa’s request, we were able to work on them playing games with each other. Still very short lived but the longest they’ve sat with each other in a while. It was so beautiful to see these moments again!
