Not knowing how to title this blog, I just started writing. I needed to reflect, digest, and process this unique experience of being able to see things from a parent perspective with a child with autism and why the work we do is so desperately needed!
It is all related…
Just recently I spent some time at New Trails in Texas, the cradle of Movement Method and Horse Boy. People often ask me, “How do you do it all?”

Implementing Movement Method and ATHENA/ Horse Boy has been such an exciting and energizing journey so far. Student’s, parent’s, and administrator’s feedback has been incredibly positive. Seeing student’s smiles and intellectual light bulbs brighten my day every time we work with the tools provided by the framework, has saved me from burnout and kindles my passion for teaching again to a roaring fire.
