Therapy Report from Family Eilmsteiner 26. July-09. August 2008
Hello Veronika, Dean and the whole therapy team!
First of all we would like to thank you all, especially Veronika and Dean. It was a great and successful time that we got to spend with you.
On the 26.July 2008 at midnight our journey started. We were very excited to see how our trip and the therapy would go. Our journey went very smoothly and the hotel Grand Yacizi Mares was very nice. Our bungalow was very big and the location was central and quiet.
The next day we had our meeting with the therapists. We had a great first impression and were excited about the therapy start.
On Monday we started with the physical and dolphin therapy. Sandra absorbed everything very well and had a lot of fun. She also enjoyed the riding a lot.
Our daughter Sandra has a delayed development-she is now 12 years old and has a mental age of about 5-6 years. She can only say very few words and these are often difficult to understand.Her motoric skills are also poor. We were very excited to see how our daughter might change through the therapy and act afterwards.
The 2 weeks went by way too quickly. Even though it was exhausting, it was a very nice time. Sandra liked everyone, especially Veronika and had a lot of fun with everyone.
Back at home we have seen some changes in Sandra. She has lost her anxiety and rushing. Her concentration is so much better, that she stays and sits at the table, draws longer and more precise, plays board games till the end and does not spill as much anymore.
Her play behavior has also changed a lot-she plays longer, with more concentration and does not randomly clean out all the boxes. Our daily life is a lot more relaxed and has gotten a lot easier.
The teachers in the school have also noticed a big improvement in her and they can work a lot better with Sandra now.
She has also made huge improvements with her language. She tries a lot to copy what you say and she is quite successful in doing so. Sandra seems a lot bigger and more mature.
We are very happy to have done the therapy and want to send a huge THANK YOU to you.
We are looking forward to next year, we will be back to see you.
Sandra, Lisa, Sabine and Helmut Eilmsteiner
