Hello all,



I've been an occasional poster and answerer here and wanted to provide an update.



Our 2 twin sons are now 29 months and doing well.

Thanks for the replies!



Both boys are really laid back, so burning out doesn't seem to be an issue. They have fun with all the therapists and look forward to it.

I wouldn't worry about the conflict between the two therapies. I will note that ABA has the better scientific backing at this point, but that's just because not a lot of research has been done on floortime. I say "Throw the kitchen sink at them and hope something does the trick".

As for which therapy you personally engage in when you interact with your kiddos, do the one that feels most comfortable to you and lie to the therapists about it. You have to do what is comfortable for you - and be the mom too.

I"m glad your little guys are getting lots of therapy - early intervention helps a lot. It's great that it seems that they are making progress already. Hopefully they'll wind up high on the spectrum, if at all, by the time they hit school age.

Keep us posted!

How are the kids doing with all of the therapies?
