Once a therapist, always a friend and member of our village…

I have said it many times before that the therapists that work with our family are so much more than a therapist. Especially once you spend 5 years once a week working with our family

Ms. S has worked with Courtney the longest and today was her last day. She became part of our team as Courtney’s Speech/Feeding therapist before Courtney was 3 years old. She was part of our village before autism became our reality. She has supported our family through some pretty tough lows and she was one of our biggest cheer leaders during some pretty awesome highs. She helped Courtney drink from a cup, she taught her how to use a utensil, she worked tirelessly on helping her try new foods, she even got the most beautiful video of her teaching Courtney how to say, “I love you.”

After 5 years, Ms. S. became so much more than a therapist. She became a friend. We are so sad to see her leave BDI and this state but I know she will be cheering us on from her new home because once you are a therapist you are forever in our village.

Thank you for being an amazing team member and friend! Love, Courtney and her family
