3. – Three-year-old Abi was only speaking in grunts and made-up words and would throw violent tantrums when his mom couldn’t understand him. Way to Grow worked with Abi to get him enrolled in early childhood special education classes and with Marina on her parenting skills. In less than six months, Abi spoke in full sentences and could identify all letters in the alphabet. He no longer throws tantrums, the family has childcare options, and Marina attends classes allowing her to plan for the future.
During our 12 Days of Growing, we’ll share with you 12 examples of how together we have impacted families and children in our community. From home visits to health education, from Preschool Pals to parent support groups, Way to Grow provides an array of services aimed at accomplishing our mission of ensuring all children in Minneapolis have an equal opportunity to succeed.
