Leo: 2014

After spending three critical years at Capitol School in Language Stim, Level 1 & 2 for severely impaired articulation, Leo started Casis Elementary in Kindergarten where he is now in third grade. Leo is a very happy, active boy, an A student, with many friends and interests.

Although he still needs and receives speech therapy for his articulation, one huge milestone in the past year was when a substitute teacher asked his regular teacher, “Where is that sweet boy with the accent from?” We consider it a victory that he is highly articulate and understood... Just mistaken for a non-native speaker on occasion.

Other highlights of the past year include:

  • Receiving his orange and yellow belts at Austin Kula Karate as well as
  • breaking his first two boards and joining the exhibition team
  • Becoming a Wolf Scout (third level) in Cub Scouts; while camping, fishing, and learning great skills with good friends
  • Reading twenty Texas Blue Bonnet Books
  • Running with his Austin Youth Fitness Group
  • Playing soccer and flag football with teams of good friends
