One morning, as I sat in my son’s hospital room, I felt an overwhelming desire to do more. My son had been diagnosed with cancer and I was experiencing first-hand what many parents with children with special needs feel. Feelings of uncertainty, guilt, worry and grief. I found myself reading and learning as much as I could. I knew his treatment would be hard; he would lose his hair, he would get sick, and he would need to fight. I had dedicated my career to helping children and families, but now, I was the one needing help. He needed medical equipment, therapy, and supplies that were not covered by insurance. We were fortunate the friends and family were always there to help and provide support.
I am very pleased to report that he is now cancer free and thriving. He is a marching band musician, pilot, and is currently in college. This experience has changed my very being to the core.
I approached Renee with an idea to give back to our families and the children in our communities. The Jump and Schout Foundation, a non-profit organization, was created to help fund augmentative communication devices, positioning equipment, mobility aids, ambulation equipment and other materials needed to help all children reach their true potential.
Jump and Schout Therapy was founded by speech and language pathologist, Leann Schouten and occupational therapist, Renee Faulkner in 2012. In 2012, we had one 1600sqft office space and a gym space without air conditioning. Today, we have two locations and over 50 therapists and support staff. We serve children with a range of special needs, including autism, apraxia, hearing impairment, auditory processing, sensory integration, fine and gross motor just to name a few.
Having the ability to reliably communicate is something most of us take for granted. This is not the case for parents with children who are non-speaking. In 2020, during the COVID global pandemic with the help of family, friends, and caring individuals like you we were able to provide iPads, AAC services and training to many families via in-person and teletherapy. These services helped children maintain their communication skills and continue to grow and become multimodal effective communicators.
You connoted help and support is needed to continue this effort.
