eye contact 

I had a beautiful visit with one of my little boys yesterday. He smiled and laughed and talked and pointed and shared and showed and made eye contact and that was AMAZING because three months ago he didn’t do any of those things. Parents and team crying because it was our last visit, but a good happy visit anyway.

It was our last visit because the system in our state gives families the choice of either sending their child to the public school system (advantage = more hours of treatment per week for the child, increased structure to child’s day) or getting therapies in the home (advantage = home-based, includes parent training and support, very up close and personal). 

In better times, both of these would be possible.
