Thankful for Joshua’s Progress

Joshua had his annual IEP update back on October 9th and his parent/teacher conference on Tuesday and has already met most of the new goals set out for him at the IEP.  I had such a feeling of gratitude looking around the table at all the people invested in helping Joshua progress in his treatment.  […]

Planning for the future: Life Coaching

I am sorry that I have been spotty with my blog posts the last few months.  We’ve had some family issues we have been working through and one of the changes is next school year, all the kids will all be in school outside of the home.  The girls will go to a local Charter […]

Alternative Therapies Help Kids Recover

I have watched shows on autism where the conventional approaches to treatment are touted due to their scientific proof that they work, which they certainly do tremendous good.  The discussion usually goes along the lines that more energies should be put into those type of therapies (ABA, Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapies).  In fact, in […]

Joshua’s Improvements and Future Autism Treatment Goals

This Christmas Season has brought with it many things to delight in.  The kids all get excited this time of year, and for the first time, Joshua has expressed verbal interest in preparing for Christmas.  He is talking a lot more spontaneously and it feels like he’s truly making some strides developmentally.   At our parish, […]

The Katie Beckett Waiver and the Idaho Children’s System Redesign

Finding Joshua the Best Treatment for Autism Available

Since Joshua was approved for the Katie Beckett Waiver, I have been taking all the steps I can to get services set up for him that would provide him with every opportunity to benefit from these specialty designed treatments  for autistic children.  It hasn’t been easy, however. I soon discovered after Joshua had been approved […]

The Willing Sacrifice for Autism Treatment

Joshua’s weekly calendar is starting to fill up and I’m realizing that although I know that all his therapy is good for him, it’s also, honestly hard on me.  I am reminded of the vision that the Lord gave me, when we first started down this road of autism treatment, of Hannah in the Old […]

I’m so thankful for school programs for autistic kids!

We aren’t made of money, of course, but we do want the best treatment for autism that is out there, if we can, searching out resources to make that happen.  This has been some of the motivation behind us moving from Washington to Idaho.  With Joshua now qualifying for the Katie Beckett Waiver, which Idaho […]

Spotlight on Journey with Joshua Affiliates

I have taken the plunge into utilizing affiliate marketing with our blog, simply for the fact that although Joshua is getting more services, his diet and supplements, are not covered by insurance and are expensive. One way, aside from your prayers, of course, that you can support Joshua along his journey is to check out […]
