Well, today was Anthony's first day at DePaul. From what the staff have told me, he had a fantastic first day. He loved the bus ride to school and was accepted by all the students when he went in for breakfast. It was a little concerning when he went for speech therapy because he was not able to identify any of the Ling Sounds. But the rest of the transition was amazing. He verbalized the entire Pledge of Allegiance with the other students and participated in almost every aspect of the day. After lunch he went down to see the audiologist who re-mapped him. After the mapping, he was able to identify 80% of the Ling sounds. So all in all a GREAT DAY!!! Everyone that I spoke with was very encouraged by Anthony's progress and his drive to want to learn to speak. I am so proud of him.
