A Journey of Milestones...

When one 2-year old boy began in Early Intervention Services at Hays Area Children's Center, he only used a bear crawl to get around, was fed soft foods by his mother, and would only use some play when sitting in his mother's lap.  After seven months of early intervention services, he has progressed to walking on his own, can hold a rail to go up and down steps and sometimes may even let go of the rail.  Click here to read more about this little boy's journey.
