I'm a 30-y-o SAHM with two kids -- Justus, and DD Noelle (2). My DH of 8 years is Pete. We live in Waukesha, WI, near Milwaukee. Justus currently receives ABA therapy 26 hrs/wk at home, plus attends an early childhood program through the school district 10 hrs/wk. He receives SDPE (specially-designed physical education), some speech, and limited OT through the school district. He attends our Sunday church classes with his peer group with the help of a line therapist. On most planes, he functions at a 2-1/2 y/o level, with his biggest hindrance being receptive and expressive speech. He has aggressive behaviors like hitting and head-butting, but can also be very affectionate and loves to hug and cuddle. He's been totally toilet trained since March (yeah!), which was an enormous relief. We found the book "1-2-3 Magic" to be super effective in discipline issues.
So that's us! I'm grateful to Candes for leading this group and to all of you moms (and dads) who keep loving these kids and reaching out to others. God bless!
