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
