We love to brag about our kiddos and are thrilled to share the progress of one special 3-year-old, Homer.
You may remember when Hopebridge partnered with WTWO News ‘Good Day Live‘ to introduce the community to his family as part of Autism Awareness Month in April. This month, the crew came back to check in on Homer’s journey, and it’s an exciting story to tell.
When he first joined us at Hopebridge’s Terre Haute center, Homer was not yet speaking. In just __ months of working with him, his parents, Laura and Kevin, have noticed major changes in communication, socialization and an all-around higher quality of life.
“He’s going to new places, meeting new people. Even just a few short months ago, that was an ordeal. We had to prepare him. Now, just this week, I’ve taken him to three places he’s never been, seen new people, and he walks right up to them and says hi. And that is huge! For a neurotypical family that might not be a big deal, but for us, that’s a big victory,” said his mother, Laura.
Check out the full ‘Good Day Live’ follow-up piece below to hear more about this spunky kid from his parents and Hopebridge therapist, Christy Bennet, plus his family’s goals for him and where he’s headed.
