Preparing for Hazards: Emergency Protocols

As a follow up to my recent Emergency Protocol email, I wanted to post a few extra resources for people who were interested. I think it is important to prepare ourselves and our children for unseen emergencies.

While making a plan is important, practicing it is equally important. Knowing what to do in case of emergencies may help save your life, your child’s life, and that of any First Responders. If you would like a link to our Emergency Protocols form to help you prepare, feel free to email us at We will continue to add resources to this page as we locate them, so bookmark it for easy return.

Have a wonderful day and stay safe,

Thanks… Giving


With so much going on in the world around us, I hope you and your family are doing well. Everyone is off work at Breakthrough Developmental Services tomorrow for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We’re all excited to be able to spend time with our families and hope you enjoy your time with your own family.

You may not be familiar with some of the assignments I give people who are part of our Parent Coaching Program. So, I wanted to share one here… especially since tomorrow is Thanksgiving.

Sometimes families may have an assignment from my book Beginning Your Child’s Journey of Change. We intermix these with other assignments like the one below as a part of our programs to provoke thought and change mindsets.

This Week’s Assignment: In your journal, note 5 things you’re grateful for this week.

Give it a try and let me know what you think. Have a wonderful start to the holiday season.

Happy Thanksgiving!
