The early years of a child’s life are very important. They grow quickly and have so much to learn. Some children and their families face special challenges that might require professional assistance.
As a parent you are the most important person in your child’s life. Think of your child and how he or she is growing. You know your child best. You notice things like how and when your child smiles, sits up, walks, talks, or holds a cup.
What you are sensing is how your child is growing through the different developmental stages. When a child has a delay in development, services are available to help you.
