At 2 years old Kate only had about five, unintelligible words. It was hard for her to communicate with her family, and the tears and frustrations were constant. Her mom called Kids Who Count and an evaluation was immediately set up in their home, and Kate qualified for speech services. The Kids Who Count staff set goals to help Kate build her vocabulary base and then her articulation. Kate loved working with Melanie and Darla, their personalities were exactly what she needed.
Being able to communicate better has changed the Olsen Family. Her mom tells us that “Kate can communicate with me, her dad and her siblings – she’s still hard to understand, but she’s doing it! We are seeing so much of her personality. She is funny and loves to tease those around her.”
We’re so happy to have been able to help this family!
