Malachi's Story

How did you discover that your child had special needs?
My older two children were talking and repeating sounds by one. He wasn't even babbling. Around 18months when he still wasn't babbling I called BabyNet.

How did you learn about Easterseals?
Through the BabyNet program

How do you feel your child is doing now in comparison to when they first started their journey? What are they able to do now that they were not able to do before?
My son is so much happier. He used to get very frustrated because he could not communicate. Now, he can communicate his needs, much better and we are seeing fewer behavior issues because of it.

What kinds of support have been most helpful to you and why?
I feel very blessed. The Team we have, EI, Speech, and Occupational therapist have been wonderful. My son has developed a rapport with each one and works well with them. They have been very supportive of us also. Each one has worked to teach up strategies and activities to do with Malachi outside of therapy. I'm very grateful to everyone. Malachi is a much happier child and we are happy seeing him thrive.
