“You probably have a toddler that’s in a type of selection choices and we all know that it isn’t working for them, then these are a few of the ideas — we’ve to do one or two issues: transfer them to a unique modality,, a unique selection so we aren’t shortchanging that baby and all of the repercussions that include it, or we have to have large interventions and we have to know what these interventions are if they’ll keep in that modality — what are the interventions? We need to see them and know them,” he stated.
