    🌟 DTC recently announced its Bikes without Barriers program, dedicated to helping children and adults with disabilities receive access to customized bikes tailored to their unique needs. 🚲💫

    Today, we shine a spotlight on Jeriah, a vibrant 4-year-old boy with an extraordinary heart brimming with hope and energy. Despite facing challenges, Jeriah’s spirit remains resilient as he battles SMA Type 3.

    Jeriah dreams of running and riding bikes like other children his age. His love for superheroes, especially Superman, ignites his imagination. He dreams of donning his superhero cape while zooming around on a bike, feeling the wind in his hair and the thrill of freedom.

    Although Jeriah has encountered obstacles, his determination to learn and grow never wavers. He bravely faces each day, striving to conquer everyday tasks and taking steps towards independence.

    We invite you to join us in making Jeriah’s superhero dream a reality. By supporting his journey to ride a bike, you’ll not only build his confidence but also show him that superheroes do exist – in the kindness and generosity of others.

    As DTC recognizes National Speech-Language-Hearing Month, we want to highlight the key milestones you should expect to see in a child aged 7 to 12 months. It’s important to recognize these and look for ways to support a child who may be experiencing developmental delays.

    Here are some ways you can help:

    🧏‍♀️ Pay attention to your child’s hearing. See if they turn to noise or look at you when you talk. Look for signs like crying while pulling on their ears, which could indicate ear problems or infections. If you are concerned, consult your doctor.

    🗣️ Respond to your child. Look at them when they make noises. Talk to them. Imitate the sounds they make.

    ☺️ Make silly faces with them. Laugh when they do.

    🙈 Teach your baby to copy actions, like peek-a-boo, clapping, blowing kisses, and waving bye-bye. This teaches them how to take turns and use gestures.

    🫶🏼 Talk about what you do during the day. Say things like “Mommy is washing your hair,” “You are eating peas,” and “Oh, these peas are good!”

    🐄 Teach animal sounds, like “A cow says ‘moo.’”

    🎶 Sing, tell stories, or read to your child every day.

    By engaging in these activities, you can help support your child's speech, language, and hearing development during this critical period. Let's work together to ensure every child reaches their full potential!
