We often hear about deaf people hearing for the first time due to new medical technologies, but it is rare for the internet to see videos of people speaking for the first time. Speech is an important part of the way people live, as this is the means for us to communicate with the people around us and express how we feel.

That is why when people with speech disabilities are provided with the opportunity to finally communicate with the people around them thanks to new-found discoveries in technology, it becomes something to celebrate.

This is exactly the case with a five-year-old boy, who was filmed looking happy as can be after he was given a chance to use the Electrolarynx technology that allows you to speak.

With the help of a speech professional, the young boy is now given a taste of what is yet to come after he continues to undergo speech therapy. He gained supporters everywhere, encouraging him to keep going.

"This makes me happy inside."

"This was waaaaay too cute! Totally made my day. Thanks for sharing :-)"

"Russ Harig: Really touched me this morning. kids are great. he is so shy and innocent, and the way his face lights up when he speaks, is priceless. please tell him he has lots of internet fans who are very proud of him."

This new technology is only the beginning for the little boy, as his mother shared how he has upcoming surgeries to help correct his paralysis. For now, though, his family is over the moon as their little boy has finally been able to communicate with them, and this milestone is something that they will cherish forever.
