When my son Axl turned 2 years old and only knew a handful of words, I knew I needed help. I was scared and sad, not knowing where to turn. When my pediatrician recommended EI/ECSE services, everything changed for my family.

We started with early intervention and had an amazing teacher and speech pathologist come to my home. They provided me with the skill set and support I needed to help my child grow developmentally. Within a few months Axl learned sign language and communication skills. We then began a toddler group that introduced my son to a classroom environment. Axl is thriving and expanded his vocabulary, but has a long road ahead of him. Now that he is turning 3 we are continuing with early education in order to help Axl reach his full potential. Please fully fund EI/ECSE.
