“We were first referred to Mary, our Service Coordinator, at Crossroads Health, who then introduced us to Jacki, our Early Intervention Specialist at the LCBDD/Deepwood. We have been seeing them for over a year, and they have really helped us. Before Liam was not wanting (or able) to do tummy time, and now he is walking!”
After Jacqueline’s son Liam experienced a long hospital stay, they were referred to Early Intervention services for developmental delays. This was to be expected due to his health circumstance, but the supports and care were beyond expectation. Let’s hear from Liam’s mom and learn more about their journey.
“Jacki has always been able to work with my schedule, which has been helpful due to all the doctor appointments for Liam. She is helpful in so many ways–not only for my son, but myself and others. Because of my son’s needs, I am not able to work which put a strain on our financial situation. Through the funding we receive from Lake County Board of DD, we were able to get a specialized blender, which we use to help Liam learn to eat foods. Through the Give and Take program run through Broadmoor School, we have received toys that help Liam to work on the developmental outcomes we are working on. We appreciate everything Early Intervention has brought us.”
We are thrilled to know that we have played a role in Liam’s progress, and touched that his mom has shared such kind words about our involvement. We are here for families who need EI services, every step of the way.
Early Invention techniques can make a world of difference for a child and their family. Learn more about Broadmoor School’s EI Program and their partnership with Crossroads Health at www.lakebdd.org/early-intervention-program/.
