What was the biggest step forward for your DD child on their journey?

Was it down to a therapy, a simple change of routine, a behavioural breakthrough, or even one person in their life who made a huge difference?

It was when we started receiving services, and got paired with the best teacher for her. Her life has seen some really good changes this school year.

My mom is my greatest support person. She is the one opening doors for A.J. All I can say is A.J is getting the best help available in my area.. All of the things we are doing is because of her guidance. We are also starting therapy on A.J even though we are waiting for IBI services.

Also, A.J was approved for Medicaid on Friday, we applied for the Katie Beckett wavier (waiver for middle to high income families). Now we can move forward and my mom will be by our side when we advocate for him in front of the State.

Learning to read. His language just blossomed and exploded once he could see that words aren't ambiguous.

I would have to say sensory integration therapy. His OT was awesome and once we got his sensory needs met he was open to learning speech and the other areas were he was delayed. It made a huge difference.
That and visual schedules.

Lately I have noticed that Jonesy's tantrums have been much less. I really think that is because he is learning to communicate his needs better. The other day pulled on my hand so that he can hand me his sippy cup (instead of throwing it when he's done). We'd been working on this for weeks and he finally did it. I know it's small, but I was so proud of him!

With Daniel, the biggest improvement happened when we got 1:1 support full-time for him at school. Not only the fact of the 1:1 support, but the lady that does it is super amazing and has the best relationship with him - she has really helped him progress at school, but also with his social skills and anxieties.
