Not that we would ever want him to have bad eyes, but HE LOOKS SO CUTE, SO MUCH OLDER AND SO DISTINGUISHED :) !!!!
When Nate has been communicating with his eye gaze, he would go to "my eyes are bothering me" a lot. I thought it was probably dry eyes or his eyes were getting tired from using the eye gaze or that it was hard on his eyes. Denise, one of his speech therapists, suggested we might take him to the eye dr. just in case to make sure his vision was okay. I really wouldn't have thought about this (don't know why, just thought a six year old would have healthy eyes ????). Turns out, Nate was right on and so was Denise. He is near-sighted and has fairly bad eye sight. Poor thing! So now it's like he's seeing everything for the first time! CLEARLY! We are so excited and Nate is too. He has been taking it all in today and you can really tell a difference!
