“JJ was 9 months old when we first started going to CV and his speech therapist began teaching us sign language. He was lying on a mat and the therapist and I were talking when he looked over and was signing ‘more’ because he wanted the ball that had rolled away from him. I think I started to cry . . . he could communicate with us! He learned over 100 words and spoke sign exclusively for 1 ½ years of his life . . . and now at 14, he still uses it occasionally. Without the speech therapist his world would’ve been so much smaller!”
