We got a response from the staff at National Service Dogs confirming that our application had been received and that the next step is a home visit sometime in the next four to six months.
I'm kind of hoping that the four to six months count as part of our two year waiting process but the documentary Paws for Autism was fairly specific about a two year wait after approval.
Either way, it gives me a timeline, which always makes me feel better. Without one, I have a lot of nervous energy being manufactured to help keep me aware and on top of the situation.
We also got some good news that extra funding came up for Autism Ontario's March Break camp funding so both Alex and Nathan are funded this year. It's not a huge amount but every bit helps.
