Q: Hi! I am a therapist. I went through training way back in 2011 from someone else unfortunately, but haven’t seen too many patients. I’m going to be opening my own dental hygiene practice and will also be offering therapy. I just don’t have a solid thumb sucking program and heard yours is awesome! I was wondering
Hi Sandra, How are you? I have two clients on thumb sucking program right now. How long do you suggest they wear Sockie? I have a 13 year old who is doing great. It has been 6 days and nights with NO slip ups. And a 6 year old who has been good too but
Mom says she has tried everything and nothing has worked. It is also interesting to note that this same child has significant weakness of the tongue.
I have a 2nd grade student who sucks her thumb. She is mentally challenged, but she is a higher functioning one. She is in resource class and the resource teacher put a glove on her hand to prevent the pattern. However, the girl will take it off. She has told the teacher that the thumb sucking does not bother her and she does not care what others think. I don’t think I will get much support at home either from the parent. Do you recommend using the Unplugging the thumb material?
I was wondering what exactly is included in the Unplugging the Thumb Kit. I apologize if I missed the description, but I couldn’t seem to find it.
Thank you. Jen
