As August arrives, I find myself thinking, “great , we have one more month of Summer” and then thinking, “OH NO, only one more month of Summer!”. I am already feeling the stressors of some of the scheduling and planning of the coming school year. Our son will be starting High School and we know the challenges will be real, but are excited about the new opportunities he will be having. Our daughter will be a Senior and that is incredibly overwhelming for me! So, I choose to focus on the now, create some more memories, have some new adventures and make these last few weeks count!
We will be heading to SC in a few days, it is an annual Summer tradition to visit family and it is one of the prettiest spots we have been to. This picture is from a trail we visited in Charlottesville followed by peach ice cream at Carter’s Mountain!
Amy Reamer, the founder of Heart & Mind, shares her reason for starting this center: ”I wanted to start my own agency to expand the resources available to families and children who may be struggling with past traumas, adoption issues or developmental/learning disabilities – too many of these issues are misdiagnosed or mislabeled and trained practitioners can be difficult to find. Trauma is not born out of words- it occurs through experiences – and to heal those wounds, words alone are often not enough. So I started a group practice to bring together professionals trained in many different therapy models which are helpful in healing, with and without words.
Two Richmond-based educational programs began a collaborative partnership this week that will help maximize opportunities for children with special education needs. Northstar Academy, a private nonprofit school in Henrico County, will host a school-age classroom for children at The Founders Center, a program of Commonwealth Autism.
