I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child Development from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, and went on to get a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Kansas Medical Center. As soon as I graduated I began building my caseload by contracting with the state of Missouri infant and toddler program. Over the last 10 years I have worked with the infant and toddler program as well as private pay cases with children up to 15 years old. I work with families on practical ways to make positive changes to their lives. I provide hands on direct therapy as well as parent education and consultation. Therapy is individualized to each child and family's specific needs. I prefer to start out with direct in home services and decrease to face to face consultation or internet-based consultation via Skype.
This 11 year-old (who happens to be my daughter) is making and selling large baby blankets on Etsy! This is the first one she has listed. She is working on a few more, and will have those listed soon also! She has been making these for a while now, but is just getting started with online sales.
These larger sized blankets are so great for swaddling! They actually stay wrapped up in these, unlike the regular sized ones you get from the stores.
As we know, one of the most difficult times for a child with autism is the start of the school year. New classrooms, teachers, peers, rules — it can be overwhelming. Any variation in routine has the potential to create confusion and stress. This can often be managed through educating ourselves and careful planning.
