I WANT TO HELP YOU HELP YOUR CHILD

HELLO! I’m Joy. I began working with people with developmental disabilities back in 1998 (wow that makes me feel old). In 2007, I started specializing in working with young kids on the autism spectrum and training parents and educators.

One of my favorite things has been training and mentoring parents along their journey. I believe that family relationships are the most important thing in a child’s life.

Parents have come to me overwhelmed and discouraged. They have felt like they already failed their child because they didn’t know what to do when they first started seeing signs of delays.

I believe that parents have instincts about their kids that no one else has. Sometimes it can be difficult when no one else sees what you see, or doesn’t think it’s a big deal. 

I get that waiting is a part of life, however, I wanted to find a way to make it easier for parents to learn ways to help their kids as soon as possible.

I can’t always be everywhere, helping everyone, like I want to. However, I can have information available that will help families everywhere and anytime. That is why I decided to create this website 🙂
