If you think that your child seems different than other kids their age, this Guide will help you find out what the issue is, and get support for both you and your child.
Does it seem that your child doesn’t have the same skills as their peers? Or has a doctor or teacher said they may have an issue? It can be scary and confusing to think that your child may have some kind of “condition.”
But there are things you can do. Learn how to get your child evaluated, find out what might be going on and get services to help your family.
We can’t tell you exactly what is going on with your child, but we can help you find out, and connect with these main systems of support: medical, educational and government benefits.
This Guide will help you:
- Identify your concerns and tell the right people
- Ask for the tests to find out if there’s a problem
- Learn about common issues like developmental delay, autism and learning disabilities
- Find ways to get support for you, your child, and your family
