My blog stemmed from a passion to spread valuable information to my community to help families with kids with special needs grow, learn and find happiness.
I sincerely hope this blog helps your family find fun in every facet of the Pacific Northwest.
I have a beautiful niece and nephew whom I adore. My mom was a teacher for 25+ years and I inherited her love for helping kids find their strengths, earn confidence and grow into fabulous adults. Life is what we make it, so I encourage all my families to build a life that is rewarding, brings joy, and builds towards a sense of freedom and independence for their children. For kids with mobility issues, this often starts with a partnership with a thoughtful pediatric physical therapist.
