Please tell me I'm not alone! PLEASE!

Jack threw a fit in the middle of therapy, because he wasn't getting his way. He didn't want to say (or sign) "More". Then he started to calm down right before it was time for the therapist to leave. He started up again right before she walked out the door and he's still at it! Anyone elses little one do this? What do I do. I really think he needs a nap but he won't stay in bed, he won't stop screaming/crying....so I just close his door.

I'm sure I've mentioned it before but I HATE therapy days....hate, hate, hate!

Poor kid, sounds like he got a bit over stimulated and is tired. Kate will get that way too and I will rock her or sing to her to help focus her and help calm her down. I find in instances like this she really needs help self regulating.

Ditto to everything Christine said above. What time was therapy today? Was it scheduled during a regular meal or nap time? That always happens to us so I already know what to expect and try to come prepared w/ food, snacks, a blanket etc... we try to avoid those times if possible (if its lunch and OT, we bring our lunch and let her eat w/ the therapist to work on oral motor) but sometimes we cannot avoid what appts they have available! Hang in there... remember, they are only 2 still!

It was around lunch time and he ate fine after he napped. He didn't want me to hold him...it was like he didn't know what he wanted because he refused everything...story, holding, food, drink.

Yeah, definitely avoid scheduling anything around lunch or nap. We've found Danny does best if he does something active in between activities - pushing something around the room, running, or jumping. Jumping is what we usually go with; I'll pull down a couch cushion and we'll jump for a 5 count, then sit back down and go back to work. I also am very adamant that the half hour before and after a therapy session is "down time" for him. I'll hang out with him if he wants me to or let him play on his own, he can watch TV, play with toys, whatever makes him happy...very much DANNY directed.

It does sound like he got over stimulated and over tired; when either of my boys got/get overtired, they would resist being held and refuse pretty much anything. Those times, I'll find a safe, good spot for his brother to be and then take Danny into our bed, lay down, throw an arm over him to keep him from getting up, and pat his back to help him settle down.
