Alyssa

Alyssa has made great progress within her food program. She will now eat bananas and banana chips! Keep up the great work!

 

Tim Whiteaker, Therapist, West Lafayette

I've been happily married for 11 years. My wife, Chrissy, and I have two children, Ben (6) and Audri (3). We also share our home with our Mini Dachshund, Sosa, and our Jack/Rat, Jax.

Our six year old, Ben, is about to start first grade and Audri is beginning pre-school. I spend my time with athletics. I am busy coaching baseball, football, and basketball. My favorite healthy recipe can be found at this website.  

Christopher

Christopher mastered 91 targets in the month of June! He is now able to attend group the whole time with his peers and will participate in group activities. This is great progress for Christopher!

Angie Hayden, Therapist, Columbus

 I have been with Cornerstone since they opened in July of 2010. My time here with Cornerstone has been so rewarding. I am amazed with how hard these kids work and the strides they make each and every day.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 5 year anniversary in Cancun, Mexico! Together we have a bright, caring, funny 18 month old son, Jones. Jones loves to play at the park, swim and play with his lawn mower. We also have a 3 year old Vizsla (dog) named Tucker. Together Jones and Tucker provide constant entertainment. In our free time we love being with our family, spending time outside riding bikes, swimming, skiing and attending Terrace Lake Community Church.

One of my favorite healthy snacks is to put chocolate chips into raspberries and freeze them. They are the perfect sweet treat for summer!
