The Superhero Project Mila: Bellingham Special Needs Photography

Mila is the latest little superhero I have had the privilege to photograph. She is stunning, playful and made me work for these photos! Mila’s mom had this to say about her:

Mila is almost 3 and has been assessed with the speech of an 18-month-old child. Mila’s speech delay is caused by an oral mouth disorder (the way she moves her tongue and lips).

She has both of these issues listed below: these are physical issues, they often have a neurologic component.

Developmental apraxia of speech (DAS) — sometimes called dyspraxia of speech: Children with apraxia have trouble moving and coordinating the different parts of their mouths in order to form words.

Articulation disorders: These include lisping, leaving out consonants when speaking, and substituting one sound for another.

She currently is going to a group class to help with her speech and is seeing a speech therapist every week. She is a very active girl who lovvvveesss horses, mermaids, and dancing, along with tickling and playing with her brother Trey.   special-needs-photography The Superhero Project: Mila.

    These photos are amazing! You are amazing! Thank you so much for this opportunity. I know that there are many kids out there with this disorder. It’s nice to get the word out about it.
