Meet Romina and Samantha - 2019 Lucky Duck Ambassadors

Romina and Samantha were born 10 weeks early and spent a month in the unit for sick babies, known as the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). As they grew, Mom had concerns with their behavior and language delays. They were constantly hitting, throwing themselves on the floor, and crying for hours at a time. It was so bad that Mom wasn't able to take them out in public due to their extreme behavior. Mom was referred to Positively Kids and couldn't be happier. A speech therapist worked with the girls twice a week with their sound production, and it wasn't long before they were forming words. They are now using 2-3 word sentences to communicate. A Positively Kids' behavioral therapist worked with Mom on implementing a token reward system to manage behaviors in the home. This has minimized the crying spells and Mom can now take them out in public. "Positively Kids has made such an amazing difference with my daughters. Thank you so much to everyone at Positively Kids!" ~ MOM

Married with 2 daughters, Mike also has a grandson and an amazing extended family.
