Occupational therapy being withdrawn due to attachment difficulties
I wanted to draw on the experience and knowledge of the forum please?
My AD has had 4 sessions of sensory integration therapy and the OT is struggling because she feels out of her depth with ADs attachment problems which show themselves by her wanting to take control of the sessions and engaging in role play which I believe is her attempt to process trauma memories? At the end of each session she will start to talk about her birth parents and will ask me various questions, there is no doubt that sensory work is triggering this for my AD but I see this as helpful for AD and not something to avoid? Much to my distress they are thinking of stopping the therapy and mentioned a referral to camhs where we've been seen previously with no direct benefit to my AD as the therapy that would have helped her was only available to children adopted from the city we live in and AD comes from elsewhere. I know there is an appropriately trained OT who specialises in attachment problems but the service only commission her to deliver this within another setting?
I really feel my daughters complexity is being seen as a reason to exclude her from the support that's helping her? Would the disability discrimination act challenge this decision? If so who would I go to for help to challenge this decision?
