is a diagnosis, it isn't a destiny." Those are the words of one mom who
with the support of Butterfly Effects has come to grips with learning
that her twins were different. "Somehow in a minute everything you
thought was, isn't." Learn how the tears of sadness have become tears of
joy for this family. "I knew my kids were really smart, but they
couldn't tell us what they knew. They couldn't tell me they love you.
... It was as if they were saying, I'm in here come find me.
Now we know they are in there. ... It's the best gift... anyone can
have. ... it's going to be okay. ...If you get the right therapies in
place, the right support."
"Butterfly Effects is different because it's personal. ...They make it personal."
"I never found anything as kind, professional and amazing as Butterfly Effects."
A few words from the lead principals in Team Joshua:
"I just wanted to take a
moment to let you know how much I appreciate Leah and all she’s done for my
son, Joshua, this year. We made the big transition to public school this
year and Leah was with us every step of the way. Her knowledge of ABA and
previous experience with public schools proved to be invaluable.
"Leah also has an incredible ability to connect with people. This ability allowed her to quickly establish a positive connection with the school staff. I’ve been amazed at how Leah uses this positive connection to bring about necessary change for Joshua without creating conflict.
"Leah’s personality and knowledge of ABA make her an outstanding school liaison. I also appreciate Leah for listening to me and taking into consideration any suggestions or concerns I may have about my son’s program.
"I’ve worked with other BCBAs in the past who did not value the mother’s input. It is encouraging to be treated as an equal participant in Joshua’s education and recognized as a subject matter expert on my own child. The consummate professional who is a true expert in her field, I think much of the progress made this year can be attributed to Leah’s guidance and direction. I am so thankful that she is part of Team Joshua."
