Every parent is eager to hear how their child’s day at pre-school or kindergarten went, the stories of new discoveries and friendships, or art projects they did.

Imagine how discouraging it would feel if your child was unable to describe their feelings or experiences, and their frustration as they struggled to put their thoughts into words.

A communication disorder makes it difficult for a child to understand what others are saying, or to express their thoughts and feelings through speech. They may speak in two-word sentences, and have trouble answering simple questions or following directions. This can also affect how a child learns and socializes – key steps in their development at this critical age.

We took Liam for hearing tests, and hearing loss was ruled out. By the time he was 3 and a half years old, he still couldn’t say the words “I love you. The MAB-Mackay changed everything for us. It was wonderful to watch Liam begin to use his voice and express himself verbally in his sessions with his speech therapist. His personality started to shine through – it was as if Liam was a different child!

This “invisible impairment” is not outgrown.

The MAB-Mackay is there to support these children, while empowering parents with the tools to nurture their child’s receptive and expressive communication skills.
