This was MJ at 3 years old when he was first diagnosed. He was having fun completing a sorting activity in his special needs Pre-K. He has always had that smile and has always loved school.
Yep you guessed it…He needed TWO therapists to assist him at the same time. This pic is from 2008 (4 years old). He needed one person to basically hold him down and one therapist to actually do the activity with him. During those days he would yell, scream, and cry during the first 20 minutes of therapy.
Some people say “it’s not good to look back”, but in this case I am glad that I do. Looking back is really helping me to see how far he has truly come. 🙂
