EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
More than a year ago my son's doctor was concerned because he was not making sounds and not moving as he should for his age. He was recommended for Early Childhood Intervention and a month later he was in the program.
I spent the next year at nearly every appointment twice a week. He has made tremendous strides in the year in speech and motor skills. He has since been reinstated for another year in the program after his year evaluation.
It has never been defined what he was being screened for, whether it was neurological or something else but we are confident that he will lead a normal life. Through the Doug Flutie Foundation Team I wanted to give back to other kids to help them lead normal and active lives too.
