Keep reading as we learn what makes life a little easier for a local mom and her kiddos with special needs.
What one “mom chore” would you forever outsource if you could?
Janis: Scheduling appointments, and getting them in all in one day. Between three kiddos with special needs, we rarely get a day to just chill at home.
What activities are you and your kids into right now?
Janis: Swimming, dancing, and playing outside
What is your favorite local dining spot near(or in) Hyde Park?
Janis: Arthur’s. Great burgers and atmosphere.
Child(ren) and Age(s)?
Janis: Lucas, 15, Sage, 9, and Maris, 2
What would you like others to know about your child with special needs?
Janis: That they all have their differences but those differences have taught me to be compassionate, patient, and how to advocate for them.
What advice would like to give other parents in the Hyde Park and surrounding areas about ABC Pediatric Therapy?
Janis: We’ve been going to therapy since my oldest was 2. We only recently found ABC in the past couple years and it has been a Godsend. It’s so fun for the kids! The therapists really care about our children and my kids can’t wait to go to ABC. My youngest asks for ABC almost daily. That really says something.
What is one wish you have for your child’s future?
Janis: To live a pain-free life full of opportunity.
