I just wanted to give an update on my son's progress with speech therapy. My little guy was born @ 24 weeks he is 2 and half now anddoing well with speech therapy. He started in Sept. At first we where a little apprehensive with putting him in speech therepy and initially did not see results right away insurance only approved 16 visits then about his 9th visit my Anthony had a break through he said his 1st word CHEESE! As it was snack time when he wasat therepy. Although he is not saying full sentences yet his vocabulary is getting better each day needless to say we are thrilled we are delighted that we can now ask him what objects are he can communicate what they are. Being a parent of a preemie even at this stage sometimes you wonder how many delays will there be with speech and learning then a day like today happens and my son spells Dodge on his chalk board. I will continue to say Anthony is our miracle and never stops surprising us. Again I thank every Mom and Dad on this site it trully helped us with making informed decisions from the NICU to his toddler years.
