My beautiful, bug 7 1/2 years old

It's Here!!!

Sean's Vantage Lite arrived today at his speech therapists office and we just happened to have already had an appointment set for this afternoon. He counted to 100 using his device on the drive home and told me about building commercial buildings and asked me to sing quieter. I knew he had nearly intact full language inside his head, he just couldn't make his mouth say it.

Yay!

We just heard from PRC, the company that makes the device Sean will use for communication. Our insurance has denied the claim, medicaid approved the claim and it is scheduled to ship to Sean's speech therapist in 3 weeks. Yay! We can work on learning to use it over the summer so he can hit the ground running next year with his new device. I am praying he will be able to catch up to his peers in academics within 3 years, social skills will be more tricky. He is a brilliant little boy, who simply can't tell us what he knows. Katy should be getting hers soon too, but no official word on when. The device Sean will get is called the Vantage Lite by PRC. http://store.prentrom.com/product_info.php/cPath/11/products_id/80 He chose green probably because the one he tested on was green. This machine should serve him well for years to come and can connect to a computer to do e-mail and has bluetooth capability to connect to cell phones and other blue tooth devices.
