Lily is 3 years old and was officially diagnosed at 2.5. When we started early intervention and private speech therapy at 2 she had no words and made very little sounds. She began making sounds and this past Christmas I got the bestgift ever when she said mama as her first word. Right now she has about five words and continues to try to say new things everyday. She also receives OT and PT.
We enrolled her in an integrated preschool program and she loves it. Her teacher said she loves school and is a social butterfly.
Lily is a fighter and even when she gets frustrated she never gives up. She will always find a way to get us to understand what she is trying to say. I am so proud of her!
