Coleman has had so many changes(for the good) in the past three months. It started when he got his tonsils out in August, and then going to school and being in a structures environment. He has always been behind in his speech, which seems about normal for kids with hypochondroplasia. I was wondering if others with Hypochondroplasia have experienced speech problems or delays also? Coleman qualified to get into PreK at our local elementary school and his therapist are there in the school. He qualified for Speech Therapy and APE (Adapted Phy. Edu.) and is in a regular ed. class. He is vocalizing his needs and wants to friends and teachers. He is speaking so well now, I rarely have to ask "what did you say" He is also showing interest in books and school, where he was not. I think it is a combination of tonsils out and school making more confidence.
