View Full Version : My son spoke!!!!

01-08-2010, 08:55 PM
I just had to share:) Our only child our son Reece was born 7 years ago with Down Syndrome. From the day he was born life has been full of highs and lows like any child just a bit different. As of this time he is still non vocal and uses signs and pictures to communicate. Well today at therapy he was being a bit stubborn not putting the puzzle pieces of animals in place when out of the blue he starts pointing at the letters in each word and saying each one he was being consistant with each word with the correct sound for each letter. The therapist and I were in shock at what we were hearing..My wife and I have said the letters thousands of time over the years and he has never spoken them...We were both in tears watching him:) Hopefully this will start him talking and I can hear the word Dad I have waited so long to hear.

Thanks for listening and you all have a great day too.

Jay it will happen. Roman is autistic and he was almost 4 before he said daddy. It brought tears to my eyes. We will be praying for you and your family. Get ready for leaps and bounds. Once they start talking it seems to unlock the world.

That is wonderful news. My wife and I have worked with challenged children for years and we feel Down Syndrome children are such a delight to work with. This is a great milestone and should open many doors for you and your child.

Thank you for sharing, it really made my day.
