Danny is nonverbal.
And not for lack of trying. Boy, the amount of speech therapy intervention boggles my mind when I think back on it.
He has pretty significant apraxia. When we did his genome mapping, the genes associated with apraxia were lit like Christmas trees.
But every once in a while….
Words fall out of Danny’s mouth. Actual totally appropriate to the situation words will fall out.
It happened the other day at Dr Pam’s.
Kate and Danny went ahead while I checked us in and paid the copay.
Clear as day Danny asked Kate “where’s mom?”
(Only, I guess, the words were all run together “wheresmom”.)
I wish I hadn’t been “lost”. I would have loved to hear his voice.
