"Maya is going off to kindergarten in the fall and is so ready to go! Her end of the year evaluations showed that she actually excels in language! I will always be so incredibly grateful to you and all of the people who were a part her early intervention. That time in a child's development is so precious particularly for language. Maya is still the happy, friendly, out-going girl you knew. But I don't know what would have happened to that girl if she hadn't learned to communicate verbally! What you are giving these little ones is invaluable. I don't think most people understand the impact of the work you do. But please pat yourself on the back. Or throw yourself a party because you deserve it!"
Watching your kids grow up is hard. Watching them grow up AND succeed is wonderful! Today is Ian's last day at Sound Start Babies, I will be forever grateful to his teachers and the staff for helping Ian learn to hear, listen and speak with cochlear implants. His journey is just beginning but I know he has a sound start behind him."
