Today we’re meeting Hunter, an energetic, kind hearted, compassionate and intelligent thriving eight-year-old boy who loves presidents, being with friends and all things Star Wars. He is a member of this year’s DSC spokes-family.
If you spoke with Hunter today, you would probably never know he struggled to speak or even form words at one time.
Hunter’s journey with DSC began right after his first birthday. As a baby he had started to babble some and even said a few first words but just as quickly as it all started, it stopped. Those words he first mumbled were quickly forgotten. A family member had told us about Early Intervention (EI) services and we decided to look into the program to see if they could give us more information or suggestions for our toddler. We had a full evaluation where it was determined Hunter qualified for speech and language services along with some developmental therapy services.
