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.
