Forbrain – Sound for Life Ltd Review

Our youngest son, in particular, has significant speech challenges. We are often working on dictation. Recently we have been using Forbrain from Forbrain – Sound For Life Ltd to work on […]

Helpful Autism Resources

April is Autism Awareness Month (I’ve even seen it called “Autism Acceptance Month”), and each year I usually post my thoughts on Autism Awareness or experiences as a mother of a child on the Autism Spectrum. This year, though, I wanted to change it up a little to share a round-up of Autism resources. I […]

What are Cervicogenic Headaches?

I know I’ve posted quite a bit about my health issues. Unfortunately, it’s just part of my life. A BIG part of my life right now. Between chronic pain from Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, it can get overwhelming, but the most debilitating of all has been chronic headaches. It wasn’t until recently I learned they […]

A Huge Milestone for my Husband – 5 Years Cancer Free!

Despite all the craziness this month, we had to take the time to celebrate a huge milestone. It’s officially been 5 years since my husband’s last cancer treatment. This is a big cancer survival milestone in itself, but we feel particularly blessed that he’s made it through so much! The past few weeks we’ve been […]

Sensory Bin Round Up

As a mom with three special needs children I am always looking for activities to encourage fine-motor skills, imaginative play, exploration. Sensory bins offer this while offering an opportunity to explore different textures. This is great for both young children as well as special needs children. It’s important to note, though, that sensory bins are […]

I’m Getting Tired of Writing Cliché Phrases

Something that comes along with working with a chronic condition (at least for me) is the need to use cliché phrases over and over and over again. Sometimes I feel like I’d rather slam my head into the wall rather than have to write “I’m sorry, it’s been a rough week” one more time. I’m […]
