Andy, Child & Family Healthy Development
Andy is a bright, energetic seven-year-old who was diagnosed with autism and partial hearing loss at an early age.
More than three years ago, he started working with therapists at Lifetrack Resources to develop his speech, gross motor and sensory-processing skills.
Since then, Andy has made great strides. He now has more age-appropriate language skills, can better assess and regulate his attention and energy levels, and interacts more positively with other kids, including his little sister. He even brings gifts and treats to his therapists.
"Andy's counselors have helped him come out of his shell," said Andy's mom, Amy. "As a result, he's much more self-confident, and as a parent that's the greatest hope I could have for my child."
