FROGGY BATTLES THE DRAGONFLIES - David Eivaz Age 9
David was diagnosed with severe Childhood Apraxia of Speech and other receptive disorders at age 4 1/2. He was unable to speak, comprehend basic concepts, read, or write. Childhood Apraxia of Speech is often mistaken for autism, but is correctable with intense and ongoing treatment. David began therapy at 4 years old needing five sessions a week, which continued at that rate for many years. David struggled through main stream kindergarten and part of first grade before he was transferred to a full-time speech and language class by the public school system. Although he was making progress, his most notable progress was after minister Kevin Dedmon prayed for him and he advanced two years in one year's time. David's parents are ministers at Harvest Christian Center in Turlock CA, and David's parents and church family pray without ceasing for David's recovery. At David's third grade open house, his mother noticed a story taped to the wall that David had written. she noticed how clever the story was and that it was clearly written, which was a sign of David's growing success with language. She decided to turn FROGGY BATTLES THE DRAGONFLIES into a book - David's first book - to encourage every parent of a special needs child to not give up. David still continues private therapy but there is a lot of HOPE and FAITH for David's complete recovery. David enjoys soccer and basketball, enjoys his many friends, and loves math and computers. He is the first author in the Eivaz family and excited about his book.
