You are not at the destination you desired. When a person has a baby they have a lot of expectations. When the child starts growing and not meeting their milestones all these alarms go off in a parent’s head. They are thrown in to a world they may be ill-prepared for to endure. Doctors, therapists and specialists may become the new norm.
There is help out there. Here is one good resource and event.

This workshop guides parents and others in the community who have developmental concerns about their child or have a child that has recently been diagnosed with a learning, developmental or other disability. The workshop explores what options and services children may be entitled to, who provides services, where to access them and how to pay for them.
• Pediatric therapists will be available to address concerns.
• Free screenings will be offered as a follow up for physical, occupational, speech and feeding concerns. Screenings can be scheduled at the end of the workshop.
• Several community resource specialists will be on hand to address specific questions, including Randy Hope Steen, Special Needs Trust Attorney.
Attendees will be entered in a drawing for a $300 Certificate for Therapy Services with Theraplay, Inc.
