Thanks so much for your advice! This is very helpful! I wasn’t aware that the Miller Method was associated with NJ. I think I tangentially heard about it through @Floortime.

I don’t think we are anymore strain on limited resources than anyone else. We haven’t gotten any government assistance (they made us pay full price for their Early Childhood Intervention—the 45 min a week we were allotted for our then 2 year old with mod/severe ASD).
