A Little Girl silent for three years shocks her parents when she finally speaks
Children are god’s gift. It is a magical moment to see your newborn child clasp your hand on the day of being born. Equally magical is the day your child utters her first words whatever it may be. However as happy a moment that can be, it can also be tragic when you know your little girl can’t speak.
Coco Bradford was one such girl struck by autism who lost her power of speech when she was just 2. The little girl was silent for 3 years but finally when she does speak; it brought tears to her parent’s eyes.
1 Coco Bradford’s battle with speech
Coco Bradford lost the ability to speak at the age of 2. As an autistic child, she was speech impaired and it frustrated her inside. However after 3 long years she regained her speech and her first simple sentence was music to everyone’s ears.
Although she speaks now but the three long years was one large battle of frustration and depression. You could tell she was just so frustrated. We tried a speech therapist but the last two years have been horrendous. You could tell angry she was becoming with herself,” stated her mother.
