It has been about 3 and ½ years since Noah received his diagnosis. He is now 7 years old, and is in 1st grade at the local public school. He had initially received services through the public school system, but since earlier this year, he did not meet the criteria for those services. He is no longer receiving therapies for his diagnosis at ICAN. When I look at him, it’s incredible to think of the changes that have occurred within him. I think of this the most when I drop him off at school in the mornings, as he easily transitions to greeting his best friend and walking with him into school, joking and laughing as they go through the doors. I am forever thankful for the part that ICAN, with its wonderful staff and comprehensive therapies, has played in my son’s amazing transformation.
My son’s experience with ICAN telehealth has been amazing! At first we were reluctant , but very quickly realized we made the right decision in transitioning. He looks forward to his weekly appointment with our OT and the fact that it takes place in our home is a bonus. The structure and routine provided are equaling engaging, very focused and continue to support his needs. We highly recommend therapy via telehealth with ICAN.
My son has been receiving speech services via telehealth for three months now. He has not only made progress during this time, but he has been knocking out goals left and right. His communication has just exploded, and it has been an amazing thing to watch. In addition to his continued success, I have also been able to gain a greater understanding of the process and, in turn, assist him outside of therapy times, which has benefited us both. I know better how to break words down and show him how to use his mouth, tongue and lips to pronunciate words. I encourage anyone who has not given telehealth a try to consider doing so not only for their child's benefit but for their own.
