My 2.5 year old son has been seeing an occupational therapist ever since he came from the hospital, which was when he was 6 weeks old. This therapist, let's call her Dawn, has been coming to our house, once a week for an hour (minus some holidays and illnesses), for the past 2.5 years, and played with my son to help mitigate any developmental delays. Dawn has become one of my son's most favorite people EVER! Whenever the doorbell rings, he'll say "Dawn?".
We are going to have an evaluation to see if my son still needs/qualifies for this therapy (Early Intervention, for anyone familiar with this). The general consensus is that he is not going to qualify, since he has improved greatly since his last eval, which was 6 months ago.
I'm starting to feel sad about it because although it means my son is doing fine regarding his physical and emotional development, it will mean that we won't see Dawn anymore.
I'm sure she is busy, she probably sees a ton of kids every week. So, while she is special TO US, we wouldn't necessarily be quite so special to her. (But, I do think she enjoys her time with my son.)
What would be appropriate to ask her, in regards to keeping in touch? Can I ask if she keeps a facebook account?
I am planning to give her a card at our last session, and I could write in the card something like this:Dear Dawn,
[paragraph about how she is best therapist ever, we love her, etc, etc]
Please look me up on facebook if you have an account as I usually post pictures of Son there, in case you ever miss seeing his chubby face! Or if you ever need a reference, I would be happy to give a glowing one. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Love, the Shygirl family
Would that be appropriate?
