From Limitations to PossibilitiesHELPING YOU HELP YOUR CHILD WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DELAYS

  • Do you feel you have ongoing power struggles with your child?
  • Does the school principal have your number on speed dial?
  • Do you wonder why your child cries hysterically when getting his hair cut? Or cringes at the mention of fireworks?
  • Do you feel judged by other parents (teachers, grandparents, neighbors, the dog!)?
  • Are you noticing that he is not getting invited to play dates or birthday parties?
  • Do other children say things like, “we don’t want to play with Johnny,” he does not wait for his turn”; “he is such a “cry baby”; “he is always falling on us”; “he can’t play tag”; “he can’t catch the ball”; “he never throws the ball to us, it goes to the side all the time!” etc.
  • Do you find yourself “giving in” to tantrums just to make them stop?
  • Are you at your wits end with your child’s behavior?
  • Have you considered the possibility that something else may also be going on? Something beyond his control that makes it difficult for him not to be “rough” when playing?

Has anyone helped you identify - Is it behavior? Or is it Sensory?

Your child may be suffering from a commonly missed neurological disorder called Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). Your pediatrician does not usually check for this disorder. It could be present with no other medical diagnosis or coexists with

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Attention Deficti Disroder (ADD)
  • Cerebral Palsy (CP)
  • Down's Syndrome
  • Developmental delay (umbrella term when a diagnosis is not yet available)

  • If the adults in your child’s life are not aware of how to deal with their behaviors or the children in your child’s life are not aware of how they can play with him or her, your child is at risk for poor self esteem and self confidence.

    You are NOT alone. I have helped many parents in the past 10 years. You will be surprised with the simplicity of the changes that are required to impact your child’s quality of life at home and in the school/community.
