We have a three year old named Abraham. We call him “Abe”. Abe is an outgoing, kind, and sweet boy who loves to make new friends and be social. As parents we noticed him falling behind other kids his age in his speech. As he would try to play with others he would get frustrated as to why they couldn’t understand him. This made us so sad to see Abe not able to communicate in a way he would have liked. He had trouble pronouncing words correctly and no sentences were coming together.
In May of this year we decided to put him in Speech to see if it would help. In just the five months of doing speech we have seen such a difference in him! Abe can now say so many words, phrases, and even sentences correctly! Not only has speech helped his communication verbally, it also has helped his confidence in meeting new friends and talking with them!
Speech with a three year old, especially over zoom, can be tricky. But Jessi, Abe’s therapist, has always been so kind and patient. She is so encouraging! Abe now gets so excited to talk and play with her. As parents we couldn’t be more grateful for Mountain Region Speech and Hearing that has been able to help our boy get where he needs to be! Seeing him smile confidently while meeting new friends means the world to us.
