Change in Program

I wonder if I should keep Project Manager on the list of active skills on my resume. Consider the hours of phone calls, coordination, discussion, and synthesis that went into this email to Leo's team:

Wanted to keep you abreast of how things are looking for Leelo's home program. Please let me know if I've gotten anything mixed or wrong.

As per a discussion with Supervisor M yesterday, it is in Leelo's best interest to keep weeknight hours as respite only. Leelo is very tired after a long day of school and on the bus, and does not do his best learning at that time. Best to transition his ABA program hours to the weekends.
[It is my hope to reduce these hours if we can get Leelo's behavior under control. Right now safety is a huge concern.]

I just got an email from Therapist Y saying that he is transitioning to a new job and will no longer be able to work Thursday nights, effective immediately. He may be available to help with extra hours during the Winter break. (Anyone else who would like to work extra hours, please let me know!)

Therapist R is transitioning to full-time school in the new year, and at that point will only be working Wednesday nights.

Therapist A is willing to consider working Monday late afternoons instead of weekends, starting in the new year.

Therapist M is available to work Friday late afternoons (except one each month), starting in the new year.

Therapist V was recommended by Therapist A and her good friend SLP R. Therapist V is a six-year 1:1 aide veteran of a local intensive autism center. He would very much like to take over Leelo's weekend ABA programming as well as do respite on Tuesday nights. As he also has just taken a new job, he will call the next few days to let me know which days and hours he actually has available.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

As usual, things are nuts here. We're living an iceberg life, with only a fraction of it surfacing on this site or indeed in IRL discussions. But in general we are good, always sleepy, and never bored. Not a horrible mix, necessarily.

    Never bored indeed. Keeping track of everything is a lot of work.

    Please check out my blog when you get time.;)

    Great post,

    Just want to say that I really enjoy your blog. You must be a pretty patient and tough lady.

    I also wanted to drop you a comment because I am trying to raise money for the Autism Action Partnership this Christmas and I thought you might be able to help. We are selling a Velvet Suit Santa Figurine and a sterling silver Four-Heart Pendant. They really are beautiful pieces and each sale benefits the Autism Action Partnership. I was thinking that you might know some moms who would be interested in these gifts/contributions. You can buy the gifts online at

    Merry Christmas and keep up the good posts,

  4. OK, this post made me smile, only because I am so in the same boat! Juggling all of Max's therapies and activities are a full-time job and, oops, I'm just remembering I need to tell everyone we're taking a holiday vacation, thanks for that poke!
