Making Progress

As most of you know, Ben has been diagnosed with childhood apraxia of speech. Basically, this means that his mind is moving very fast, and he has trouble helping his mouth catch up! We deal every day with his frustration, since communication can be very difficult for him. But he is a trooper, and with therapy he is making great strides. A huge leap happened on Sunday. Nate was helping Ben get dressed for church, and Ben said "I put on shoe." For Ben, this was amazing! In a similar situation, he would usually babble incoherently and then say "shoe" at the end. Nate was floored, and very proud of his little guy! We work with him every day, and we get so excited when he makes such wonderful progress.
