Last week, Jayne Walton, a speech therapist at the South Charlotte office of Child and Family Development, received an email from a child’s mom that totally made her day.
Here are the best bits:
I just wanted to give you a little praise today. <My son> had his annual exam at Duke with the neurology team and they we impressed by your astuteness to see his tonsil issue, which they are also concerned about. He will see an ENT next week.
Also, they formally diagnosed him with Apraxia. Maybe you've used that term to me before, but it seems like (not surprisingly) his speech/motor problems correlate with his neurological condition.
Thanks for working with us. I think he's going to be a harder case, but therapy is going to be vital for him. We appreciate your astuteness and attentiveness.
