1st Five Success Stories

1st Five Finds Services and Information for Child with Speech Delay

Sam, a three-year old, was referred to 1st Five by his pediatrician for a speech delay and lack of toilet training. 1st Five provided child development information to the family on toilet training and referred the child to the local AEA for speech evaluation. AEA intervened and the child's speech improved. Sam's parents shared how much their stress and worries about Sam had been reduced now that they're communicating with Sam like any normal three-year old.
