Sophia is 21 months old. She qualified for services due to delays in receptive and expressive language and her cognitive skills were borderline. Sophia started services in June, 2017. Sophia lives with her dad, Tyler and her 10 year old brother.
Tyler is a single parent. He gets up at 4:30 a.m., takes the children to day care by 5:30 a.m. He picks them up at night at about 4:30 p.m. On the first visit with the KWC provider, he asked her if she would keep all documentation very simple because he has a hard time reading, and would she text him the night before so he made sure he was on time to the visit.
The family has few toys so the provider has taken a couple of toys from KWC’s toy lending library, but mainly uses the toys the family owns. On the fourth visit, Tyler was excited to show the toy he made for Sophia, specifically to help her language skills. He has taught her how to consistently sign “more” for another toy to drop into the container. He is also reading simple books to Sophia and singing a few songs. Sophia was not babbling five months ago. She is now using a few words consistently such as “daddy” and she signs several words. She has made improvement in all developmental areas and Tyler tries to spend time working on their goals each day.
