Eli McIntosh is enjoying life as a kindergartner at Kenwood Elementary in Bowling Green.
So is Aleks Ostrowski, a member of the kindergarten class at St. Aloysius School.
Like the other children in their classrooms, Aleks and Eli are learning to read simple words, add simple sums and "work and play well with others."
But 6-year-old Eli and Aleks have a special challenge to overcome. Each has a condition called Apraxia of Speech, described by medical professionals as a very challenging and complicated, but little-known, neurological speech disorder.
"The kids know what they want to say, but they can't make the mouth form the words," explained Eli's mom, Beth McIntosh, current president of an organization called Northwest Ohio Apraxia Support.
"I was one of the parents that started the organization two years ago."
