According to the National Institute of Health, 1 in 12 children in the U.S. has had a speech or language issue. Boys are more likely than girls to have those issues. The Compton family faced a speech diagnosis with their son, Cason. Thanks in part to funding from the WHAS Crusade for Children, Cason is finding his voice with help from the Eastern Kentucky University Speech Language Clinic.
Since 1970, Eastern Kentucky University has received $1.5 million in WHAS Crusade funding for Special Ed scholarships and clinical equipment.
