Hello, I am Jennifer, mommy to Alexis. She is 6, and has a visual impairment, autism, and global developmental delays, including a significant speech delay.

Her speech skills are about 3 years I believe. She has trouble with both receptive and expressive, though receptive is better. And with her autism, she has loads of trouble with conversations and tends to be completely echolalic (repeats everything she hears). We are working right now to get her some augmentative communication devices to increase her communication abilities and decrease her frustration.

I hope I am welcome and I look forward to getting to know everyone.
