Parenting Series: Spotting developmental differences in children and where to turn Part of the parenting series

About 1 in 7 children born in the United States have a developmental disability ranging from mild disabilities such as speech and language impairments to serious developmental differences, such as intellectual disabilities, cerebral palsy, and autism. Come for an engaging conversation about how to spot differences in your child and how to help them do their best.

In what seems like another lifetime I was a 4th grade teacher, having received an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Ohio University.  That changed in 1985 when I began teaching in a church based community preschool. in Indianapolis, where we raised our 4 children.  I have been in love with Early Childhood development and education since then.  I received a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Special Education from Indiana University and a second Masters Degree in School Administration from Northern Illinois University.
