Juanita has three beautiful girls ages 16, 6, and 4 years old. The youngest daughter was diagnosed with a speech delay at 18 months. Since she wasn’t talking much, she was behind on learning. She was told the middle daughter was learning on a normal range. However, her daughter couldn’t recognize letters or numbers out of order.
