It felt great. This space is me. It's colors, layout, kitchen table, coffee brewing, snacks for my buddies kids. It is a clinic space that is as close to the warmth of being in my home, without the chaos of home.
I used my "I'm a friend of Leelo's" mug that has a pic of Leelo and was designed by squid of www.squidalicious.com with proceeds going to autism research. I adore both squid and Leelo and I think Leelo will like the space, too.
Some of my buddies stopped by today, so nice to share it all with them and have them share in my joy. Jennyalice's 2 kids thought they'd died and gone to heaven. I even worked a bit and saw 2 clients!
I have a sign out sheet for a book loaning program in the waiting room so parents can borrow books/materials about ASD, apraxia, the picky eater, etc. If you've got any books to donate-let me know!
I'm going to have the SEPTAR evening support groups use this space also.
It is gonna be a great thing.
