    Default Mile High Morning: Garett Bolles dedicates 2021 season to son to raise awareness for recent diagnosis Jun 17, 2021 at 09:00 AM

    The Lead

    Over the past couple of weeks, Garett Bolles and his family have begun adjusting to a new change in their life after his 4-year-old son, Kingston, received a learning disability diagnosis.

    "I'm trying not to get emotional," Bolles said Wednesday. "My son was diagnosed with apraxia of speech. It's a learning disability where it affects him and how he speaks and how he communicates. From now until he's seven years old, he'll go into intensive speech therapy to help him."

    The condition, Bolles said, is difficult to diagnose and daunting to address, but he said Kingston is adapting well.

    "He's doing awesome," Bolles said. "He learned two new words yesterday, so I'm actually really proud of him. He learned 'open' and 'out.' It was just so cool to watch the facial expression on him and how he was proud to learn those two words. A lot of it is muscle memory. How we learn — we learn by hearing and being able to communicate. Kids with apraxia of speech, it's all muscle memory to them. It's repeating the same words over and over again and finding new ways to get to him."

    It’s fortunate that they found out so early in Kingston’s life, learning disabilities can go a lifetime without being treated.

    Bolles is one of favorite players now. Dude was a laughingstock and getting roasted by schlereth on TV and dedicated himself to turning it around and did it. Hoping he can solidify that turnaround this year and have a long career here.

    I always liked to hear about the old-timers. Never missed a chance to do so. You can't help but compare yourself against the old-timers. Can't help but wonder how they'd have operated these times - Sheriff Bell.

    Here’s to the Bolles family as they make there way through this, I’m glad Bolles has the access to resources his son needs.

    Good luck Kingston Bolles! Your dads a warrior so I’m betting you are as well
