Making Progress

We are approaching Rachel's 2 month post activation date. She was activated January 6th, and March 3rd will be 8 weeks. She has another mapping on that day. She attends weekly speech therapy, and each week we can see a measurable improvement in her discrimination of sounds. She is getting very good at understanding the cadence of speech. How many beats on the drum, how many sylabels in the word, etc... And she is beginning to recognise high pitch vs low pitch sounds.

It can be frustrating in the day to day activities because progress is slow. But she is making progress and that is all that counts. Seeing measurable gains is very encouraging. We are about one mile into the marathon.

Thanks for the update. It's terrific that progress is happening, even if it's at a slow and steady pace!
