Caleb was born a healthy, happy baby, but when he was 5½ years old, he contracted a strep throat infection. He was treated with antibiotics for 10 days, and we didn’t think anything more about it.
Caleb started kindergarten that fall, and we were confident that he would do well, especially since he was writing, counting, speaking French and English, and was very excited to go. A month into school, we noticed some changes in his behaviour: he no longer wished to attend school and was becoming aggressive; he didn’t want to be in anything other than his underwear.
