I have lost all sense of time, but I think Joey has been working with Ben for almost three years. He came to us after a string of horrible (I mean really scary) staff experiences. Joey came highly recommended by two different friends. It turned out I had met him a few years ago at a retreat.
Joey is a man who wears many hats - traveler, writer, graduate student, youth pastor, caregiver, volunteer, delivery man and probably a few I have left out. Joey wrote this article for the Baptist Pacifist Fellowship: Crossing Borders: My Experience with People with Different Abilities. He tells a bit about Ben and also gives parents of typically developing children some tips for how to approach children with special needs.
