3-year-old continues to recover from serious dog bite

Kai Bianco is finding his independence.

The little boy, who was bitten in the head by the family dog when he was 9 months old, turned 3 on Tuesday. This fall, he starts preschool at Fletcher Miller School for children with special needs in Lakewood to get some additional physical and speech therapy, but his parents hope he will be at the same development level as his peers and ready to attend Wilmot Preschool in 2017.

Kai went to a playground near his Evergreen home with his parents, Brandon Bianco and Shelby Foley, and they talked about his progress.
