Journey School


Our TBRI Team visited the Journey School this week to provide in-service training on Trust-Based Relational Intervention®. The four-hour overview included information about the attachment cycle and how trauma disrupts it and the three principles of TBRI: Connecting, Empowering, and Correcting.

TBRI Team Manager Jennifer Reitmeyer (far left) and TBRI Practitioners (left to right) Francine Stanfield, Kristy O'Neal, and Erica Avedikian enjoyed meeting with the amazing teachers at Journey who serve children with differing abilities.

Our TBRI Team is available to provide complimentary training to your organization. If you're interested in learning more, contact Jennifer at [email protected].

With the new years approaching this year we have had some ups and downs some good and some not so good we have face different challenges but don't let that get you down. look ahead because with the New Year is a new chapter we had have had some really good memories about the past one, but you never know what the new one is bringing for you. It’s time to be hopeful, have new dreams and make some new resolutions for the new year in your life. It’s time to connect with each other and make new year wishes. It’s time to move on and embrace what’s new. The new year means a lot of new dreams and new achievements. If you are excited about the new year that’s soon to occur. May God’s presence never leave your heart. To each new chapter of your life, may the Lord grant you His grace and strength. So Here's to a bright New Year and a fond farewell to the old; here's to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold. May the New Year bless you with health, wealth, and happiness. And with a new year and saying goodbye to 2022 means Kiss your fears away. This New Year must be celebrated and lived happily. See to it that each day, you feed your soul with God’s Word.

That way, you will not feel the hunger.
I hope you stay full of God’s love.

Life is not life without God by our side. He is the reason why we are alive.
He is everything. Offer your prayer of thanks this New Year!

Go ahead and enjoy life. This is another gift. Live each day as if it is your last so that you will be able to say that you have lived your life to the fullest.

Happy New Year. No matter the size of the problem you are facing or if the situation seems impossible to solve, if you keep your faith intact, God will help you overcome everything.

Congratulations on this New Year to you and your family.

May God’s presence never leave your heart. To each new chapter of your life, may the Lord grant you His grace and strength.

Happy New Year Journey School Family!

Being thankful isn’t just for Thanksgiving

A Prayer Of Thanksgiving

In thanksgiving, we lift our voices of praise from grateful hearts, Father, as we sing songs of praise and adoration to You, our blessed King.

Whether in seasons of prosperity or in seasons of want we find Your grace sufficient to meet each one of our needs.

Father God we thank You for life. We thank You for giving us another day to do something for others because we are so blessed. Lord every day we say thank you to You.

And You guide us, protect us, and You provide for us as we journey here below.

Every good and perfect gift comes from Your hand. Our lives would be empty without You Farther.

We love You Lord and honor you today and always in Jesus name we pray! Amen.

Pathfinders Morning Meeting

Happy Friday! Join our Pathfinders class for thier morning meeting. Every day they go through their schedule so everyone knows what to expect during the day. It's a great way to teach time telling, transitions, and accomplishing tasks in order.


Have you ever thought about what it would be like to have thoughts and feelings you needed to communicate but were unable to? Imagine if something was hurting you and there was someone nearby that could help you but you couldn't speak. How would you feel? Helpless? Scared? Frustrated?
At Journey School, we never want a student to feel this way! Because of that, we use multiple modes of communication including but not limited to sign language, AAC systems, and communication boards. Everyone has something to say and everyone deserves to be heard.


We want to answer your questions! What is something that you want to know about Journey School? Ask your questions in the comments and we will answer them over the next few weeks!

TBRI®: Trust-Based Relational Intervention® 01/25/2023

TBRI®: Trust-Based Relational Intervention®

Every Tuesday for the next few weeks, we will be sharing about Trauma, how it affects the student, their brain, and how they learn and connect with others. Trauma doesn't have to be from abuse or neglect, but can also include medical trauma, like a NICU stay or complex medical conditions or procedures, as well as the loss of a family member and many other things. TBRI is an incredible program designed to help rewire the child's brain, help them move past the trauma, and be able to trust as well as learn. We use these techniques at Journey School! We hope that the videos and information we share will provide you with tools to better connect and communicate with children who have experienced any form of trauma.

TBRI®: Trust-Based Relational Intervention® What is TBRI®? We are pleased to present a new video resource that answers that very question. It is our hope that the TBRI Animate will inspire parents and ...


"If a child can't learn the way we teach, we need to teach the way they learn."

At Journey School, each child is taught as an individual. They are not compared to another student or expected to learn or grow at the same pace as anyone else. Each student is created uniquely and perfectly and deserves to learn exactly how they need to.

We want to say a HUGE thank you to Church Project and their group of 9th grade girls who came and raked our school yard and cleaned windows and our ball pit. They worked so hard and were such a blessing.

Today we went on a field trip to the Downtown Aquarium! Everyone had a wonderful time! Some of our students were even brave enough to touch and feed the stingrays!


Our Prospectors class has been working hard on their garden! They water, measure growth, and track progress during the week. The class has enjoyed watching their plants thrive and have even harvested a strawberry!

Photos from Journey School's post 01/17/2023

Our students are so incredible! Behind every student is a teacher, paraprofessional, and parent that believes in them and their abilities. We believe that God has big plans for their precious lives and we are so grateful that we get to be a part.

Our staff returned to campus today! We received an amazing training by the TBRI practitioners from Montgomery County CASA.

We can’t WAIT for our students to come back to school tomorrow!


2022 has been a year of change for Journey School. New campus, new teachers, new students, new connections, new friendships, new words, new discoveries... the list could go on forever! God has blessed Journey School and we can not wait to see what 2023 will bring!

Only two more days until Christmas!
"And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins."Matthew 1:21


The Mariners loved playing and exploring in their new Christmas themed sensory bins. We are so thankful for the Journey School Family that made and donated these to our school!


Last week in life skills, the Prospectors class learned how to follow a recipe and made Christmas cookies! They were delicious! Baking cookies is such a fun holiday tradition. What are your favorite holiday cookies?

The depth of the thankfulness we are feeling today is truly indescribable. This past year has come with change, loss, indescribable grief & alongside of the struggles each person has faced has come growth & connection & true joy. We pray as you walk through this Thanksgiving, whether in joy or pain, that you would know how dear you are to God & sense His nearness.

To everyone that makes Journey School who we are, we love you and are incredibly thankful for you. Staff, parents, board members, donors, our new landlord and community support… thank you! & to our students, we are the most thankful for you, who you are, who you are becoming & the valuable blessing you are to our school and to our world.

Happy Thanksgiving from Journey School 🦃
