Hello I am new member, and new to blogging!
« on: Aug 30, 2013 @ 12:10 PM »
Hello everyone, I am hoping that with blogging and talk to all you lovely ladies that I might find some help or comfort in learning about other moms who have developmental delayed children. Recently my son was diagnosed with developmental delays as well as speech impairment, I just wanted to connect with someone on this level, I am 23 years old and it's hard to talk about this with friends who arent even married or have kids yet! Please Help!!

Hello there and welcome. I have 15 years experience working in education, and I have worked with many children who were diagnosed with developmental delays. Every child learns differently and at different paces. Labels always make me angry and unfortunately some schools and doctors are always ready with a few. My advice to you is to get past the label, be patient and investigate the thousands of resources out there that will help your child. I know the diagnosis was scary for you, but don't worry. The first thing you may want to do is to find some support groups in your area. There are a lot of groups on Facebook. You may also want to check out Meetup.com. I don't know where you live, but Meetup.com is a good start. Here is a link of groups that I found. Join for free and put in your zip code and it will come back with a list or the option to start your own group. I hope this helps.  :)
