Family Days

Spring always means Family Day! for each of Riley’s amazing programs.

We are so grateful for organizations who make our lives fuller and give Riley so much love.

Mother & Child Cruise

Riley and I had the pleasure of being guests on a Freedom Waters Foundation cruise of the Naples area aboard The Edison Explorer. Gretchen Scott Designs sponsored the Sunday morning trip for special needs individuals and their moms.

Coast Causes

Gathering Riley up from school Monday for OT earlier this week, the woman at the front desk handed me a page from newspaper.  She had spotted Riley in The News-Press of Fort Myers, April 18th, 2016 Causes: Toast of the Coast page 3D.

I just love the little gestures!

We were blessed yet again to have the wonderful not-for-profit Freedom Waters Foundation

Functional Skills Classroom Components

Time for this mom to begin doing serious planning on research concerning IEP’s and the school environment.  Riley’s school career had a rough start, however his elementary school experience has been a very healthy and positive experience.

This school year Riley has moved on to a Middle School.  The new classroom situation is best described as underwhelming.  This is not a situation I find I want to continue to send my child into each day. To make changes, it is time for me to fully understand what his needs are and what should be expected of his school.

Freedom Waters

Sunday proved to be a beautiful day. A light breeze brought the heat down as Riley, Ronan and I met up with a gathering of special needs families called in by the amazing Debra Frenkel of Freedom Waters Foundation

Field Day 2015

A great disappointment came early this year when we learned that the Special Olympic’s of Lee County had decided against holding the annual Field Day for ESE students. 

Painting with a Twist

Join us for Sunday evening for a Painting With A Twist fundraiser to provide Riley with his own iNfinity App.  The evening, organized by our friend Donna Lee (readers know her as Riley’s Massage Therapist), is going to be great fun with some amazing people.  I hope you can join us!
