Sociable Rares is an energetic 3-year-old who enjoys exploring new activities at our Delia’s Friends Learning Center. While a happy child, Rares’ spoken ability is often slow and he doesn’t have many words. We are unsure of whether this may be that his hearing is impacted by frequent throat and ear infections. There is concern that Rares may be autistic but he does not yet have an official diagnosis. Our goal is to offer early intervention, such as speech therapy so that Rares will be able to attend kindergarten and not be left out of the mainstream educational system.
