Within 4 days I speak my first word ‘Lion’ as I put pieces of what has become my favourite jigsaw into place. Mum feels there is some connection with this ‘unusual’ first word and the bravery I have displayed since birth. I do enjoy my therapy it is calming and surprisingly relaxing.
Listening to Mum’s voice is intriguing, it sounds like Mum after intaking a helium balloon, it replicates the voice I would hear in the womb. I don’t instantly recognise it as Mum but it is familiar to me and I keep uttering “Mama Mama Mama.”
In the days that follow I continue with my second word “singing” as I am in the bath and simply want entertainment.Not your average first words, but my language is already developed within the brain, the brain and the body can’t work together for me to outwardly communicate. Paul Madaule could see what others couldn’t, he knew he can unlock me.
Mum and Dad think the changes they have seen so far are nothing short of a miracle, Paul’s response is simple; “it’s not a miracle it’s a method to help unlock the brain and bodies full potential”.
