Finding Happiness

Last week I talked about making decisions and how hard it can be for me to make a decision for change, but that once it is done how great it can be. Well this week has been full of productive uncertainty and a major decision. I decided this past week to make a change in …


Obstacles to Progress

You may think that I’m going to talk tonight about conditions that your child may have that hinder progress. My focus tonight instead is on how some of the biggest obstacles to your child’s progress is not the child’s obstacles, but instead the parent’s. This may be a hard post to read and it can …


Summer Slow-Down

As the school year winds down I find myself looking forward to the slower pace that summer brings for my family. Two of the kids are already done with preschool and our oldest finishes his school year on Friday. While we are involved in various activities throughout the summer, the constant, hectic, “have to do” …


Lights, Power, Action!

Ok – the changes weren’t as visually obvious this week – we had all of the electrical stuff done. This means a lot of electrical outlets, can lights in the ceiling, and a lot of wire! Next week we should be getting insulation and the starts of drywall, so things will hopefully look different in …

School-related decisions seem to be an ever-present issue for all families, but especially for families with a child with unique learning needs. Here are some things I have found myself saying to families recently in …



Ok – another week has gone by. We now have windows, a shingled roof, all the plumbing, duct work, and the electrical is getting started this weekend. I’m assuming that next week they’ll be able to get started on drywall. We all just love going out there and walking around – once the drywall goes …


The Power of Time

The power of providing processing time is truly an amazing thing. I recently watched a video of one of my clients making a snack with his mom. They made a dog out of fruit and when they finished putting it together mom made a great comment wondering what other type of animals they could make. …



As we stated last week, Nicole and I went to Paris to work with a couple of families. Our time out there turned out to be quite different than planned with some unexpected events, but we got done what we went there to do. The families we worked with were wonderful. What a pleasure to …
