"Now everyday life has got us back. Joachim has been going to school for a week. When I picked him up today, the teacher asked me what we had done with him. She has seen a completely different child since this school year. Until now he was rather unfocused and inattentive, now she thinks he is a real school child. He no longer shoots the finished worksheets at her but puts them on her desk, he actively participates in the morning circle and is extremely persistent. In the same way, his support worker has pointed out to me before that he is very hard-working, yesterday potatoes were harvested in the special school and Joachim is the one who enjoys the work the longest. In addition, during the last two weeks of the holidays I started not to give him a nappy anymore, but to go to the toilet with him regularly, successes are rewarded with pickles. Apart from two mishaps, we have survived the 3 weeks without any accidents. We even dared a trip to Vienna without a nappy and it worked. He doesn't report going to the toilet on his own (only twice), but I think that is also a process that we will hopefully overcome. I tried this experiment regularly three years before, but Joachim absolutely did not want to go to the loo. Heribert and I are both very proud of him, and so are the siblings. I think we have the dolphin therapy to thank for these successes after all, maybe we'll give it another try after a year's break." Kind regards to the still "hot"
