Meet Arty

Arty came to Practice Without Pressure the first time as an 18 year old young man who needed some bloodwork done.  His parents had taken him to a local lab, and were told they would hold him down to get his blood, simply because he has autism.  Mom and dad left before this happened.  Arty is significantly affected by his autism, and they had heard about PWP at his school.  They made an appointment for practice for blood draws. 

After three practice sessions, Arty got his blood drawn with no restraint or sedation.  He was so proud of himself, and continues to do well. 

He also comes to PWP for dental practice and procedures.  These are more challenging for Arty, but he has had dental exams, cleaning, xrays and restorations done successfully and without restraint.
