Enrichment
Teaching him the lyrics of songs, especially bible songs he likes to sing but obviously isn’t getting the words.  Plan on having him copy song lyrics and will attempt to get him to pick out the melodies on the piano.

Looking for a Music teacher/music therapist.  I have some beginning music books and am hoping to be able to teach him out of that, but I never got that far last year.

Shopping for Curriculum, therapy equipment, and educational toys.

  • Jesus didn’t send his disciples out as “Christian soldiers marching as to war.” He sent them out as peacemakers, who would form circles of friendship and thereby enable people to connect with one another. That is still the primary Christian mission: better living through better circles of sharing. — Tom Ehrich
