Four year old Cheri was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis (misshapen skull due to premature fusion of the skull) at the age of 6 months.  At 11 months of age, she had Cranial Vault Reconstruction (CVR) surgery.  She has been receiving physical therapy for gross motor delays since she was 2 months old and has been receiving occupational therapy for about a year.  She started speech therapy at the age of 2 years and made little to no progress in a year. At the age of 3 she was diagnosed with Apraxia of speech and she started with a different type of speech therapy.  She has been making a lot of progress there and is working really hard.

Cheri is a very happy little girl.  She always has a smile on her face and she never lets her delays get her down.  In fact, she works very hard at overcoming them.  She loves puzzles, books, coloring and riding all of the rides at Kings Island.  She has a little sister that she loves to play with.  She loves to snuggle with her mommy and play blocks with her daddy.

As she is making progress with her new speech therapy, her parents would like for her to continue the more intense therapy of going at least twice per week.
