Two-year-old Angelo and his mom Carla were at a crossroads and didn’t know where to turn. Angelo would express himself through tantrums, crying, and throwing toys. Carla struggled to get his attention and shared the challenges they were experiencing with his pediatrician. In addition to his behaviors, Angelo had a speech delay. That’s when Angelo’s doctor referred the family to Southwest Human Development. The agency’s Birth to Five Center of Excellence team met with Angelo and Carla for an evaluation. It was determined that Angelo qualified for speech and occupational therapy along with the services of a nutritionist.
