laundrycrisis Posted July 23, 2012 Share Posted July 23, 2012 Our sons' OT recommended a clinical TKD program for DS2 because he seems to be craving more structured activities with other kids. I explained to her how when he takes a class, if it is very structured and well controlled, he loves it, and if it is poorly controlled and chaotic, he is miserable and regresses, so I have to be careful about what I put him in. She thought the TKD might be great for him because of the structure and emphasis on mental control, and this particular academy specializes in teaching kids with behavioral special needs, and it would help with continuing the core strength and coordination work she is doing with him in OT. My concerns are cost - how much is TKD generally ? I am assuming the clinical program would be even more expensive. Time - is TKD something that can be adjusted through the year ? Spring is very busy for us with both kids in baseball, 2 games per week plus practices, and I would want to slow down any other activities. DS2 - he has very strong reactions to other kids pushing or grabbing him. He gets terribly angry and it takes him a long time to recover. Would this help him work through this, or make it worse ?
