I haven't posted in a while, but things are going well these days. Each day, Kevin's clarity seems to be improving. He has started some patterns of omitting initial or final sounds, but even that is getting better. Today, we were looking at a book and he saw a picture of a banana and said the word as clear as day! He didn't say 'nana' or 'bana' or anything else he was previously saying, he said 'BANANA'. I made him repeat it about 10 times! To me, this means that his tongue is really starting to work in his mouth. I am very encouraged by this.

Now, if we can only get those 's' sounds when he talks in sentences!!! That will be our next breakthrough..... :)

That is great! Kevin is making good progress. Those "s" sounds will be tough. . . those are hard. . . along with the "r's".

I bet Kevin is listening and processing in his mind. . . kids are like sponges and absorb everything. And you get a treat when he says what he is thinking!

Looking forward to more updates!
