Overview

Developmental delays affect millions of children each year, and often go undetected until an alert and caring parent recognizes there’s a problem. In A Parent's Guide to Developmental Delays, special education expert and consultant Laurie LeComer, M.Ed., provides essential information for any parent with a child who might have cognitive, physical, or emotional delays. Easy to understand, reassuring, and up-to-date, the book covers everything concerned parents need to know.

Using real-life examples and case studies along with checklists, exercises, and other hands-on advice, the book covers a range of delays and disorders that include autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, Sensory Processing Disorder, aggressive behavior, and motor-control problems. Topics include:

  • Spotting the "red flags" of delayed development, for every age group

  • Identifying your child’s specific challenges

  • Acting swiftly in order to gain the advantages of early intervention

  • Getting a diagnosis and treatment plan that fits your child's needs

  • Working with teachers, health professionals, and specialists for maximum results

  • Tracking your child's progress

  • Understanding your rights and making the most of every available resource

  • Trusting your instincts in order to help your child learn, develop, and thrive
