Like any new mother, Elizabeth Picklo was excited about the upcoming birth of her son. She had lots of hopes and dreams for him - all the typical thoughts and plans: watching him play and grow, go off to school, make friends, start driving and dating, etc. And, CJ was born two months early, Elizabeth still felt happy and confident when he was released from NICU after only three weeks. Once at home, she settled into her role as a new mother with CJ.

However, over time, Elizabeth began to notice that CJ wasn’t reaching various communication milestones – he wasn’t speaking at all. CJ’s pediatrician recommended hospital-based evaluation and therapy, but with a wait list of over a year, she felt they would lose crucial development time for CJ.

That’s when Elizabeth discovered CHSC through an online search and the family was thrilled to find out they could get an appointment within weeks.

After CJ’s evaluation, he began working with a CHSC Speech Language Pathologist. He has and continues to build vocabulary and makes tremendous progress.

CJ is now 5 years old and is working hard to prepare for Kindergarten. Elizabeth knows he’ll be ready when the time comes. She says, “We wouldn’t be where we are today with CJ’s progress if it weren’t for CHSC. They have not only given him the skills he needs to succeed – they have given me back my hopes and dreams for him.”

Paislee was born with moderate/severe bilateral hearing loss. She has been receiving services at the Cleveland Hearing and Speech Center since 2015. She has benefited tremendously from the early intervention of the Regional Infant Hearing Program.

We race in her honor with the hopes that CHSC will continue to grow and provide the same outstanding support to children and families. CHSC is amazing and will continue to hold a special place in our hearts! 

Paislee's Pilots is racing for their third year in a row! Your support means the world to us!

As CHSC employees, we get to interact with many families who are looking for answers.  Helping parents understand their child's deficits by including them in the therapy process is a great beginning, and forming a trusting relationship with families as a child grows is intimate.  We are thankful every day for the opportunity to meet families who care deeply for their children and open their hearts to us as part of their therapy process.
