You Are Not Alone

If you have recently learned that your child has a developmental delay or a disability this message may be for you.

When parents learn about any difficulty or problem in their child’s development, this information may come as a tremendous blow. One parent describes how devastated and confused she was and recalls little else about those first few days. Another parent described this event as a “black sack” being pulled down over her head, blocking her ability to hear, see, and think in normal ways. Still another describes the trauma as “having a knife stuck” in her heart.

Many things can be done to help yourself through this period of trauma. In order to talk about some of the good things that can happen to alleviate the anxiety, let us first take a look at some of the reactions that occur. Please “like” us on FB for continued information on the topic of discussion about common reactions when learning that your child may have a disability. You are sure to find comfort and guidance in future posts. Hope you join us! 🙂
