Around October of 2009 I was still planning to go and get my AAERT certificate for transcription, and start my own transcription company. There was a time around then that I found out with all the years I’d already been transcribing, that I probably wouldn’t have much of a pay raise by making this change. I was also already happy with the transcription company I was working for, and I didn’t really want to change. Additionally, we were concerned with Chris’s placement then, and had a dream of eventually owning a group home and having it be for our boys eventually plus other clients.
This led to my signing up at community college to work my way back up to getting into a speech pathology program. I started in January of 2010 and by Fall of 2011 was at Kent State starting the pre-speech pathology program. Then this happened: http://www.criscollrj.com/2011/09/09/minor-changes-or-major-changes/
