When It Comes to Your Child, You’re Looking for Answers With Depth, Not Broad Labels
You may have always known that your child is different from other children, but not in ways that seem to fit into existing diagnostic categories.
You haven’t found answers in the pages of parenting books, and advice from friends and family members has not produced the expected behavioral changes or perhaps has even backfired.
You’re awed by your child’s gifts in certain areas and yet baffled by his or her inability to accomplish certain basic tasks. You see the uneven patterns of your child’s development and are unsure where to set your expectations.
You worry that others may misjudge your child and it will take a toll on his or her self esteem.
“I can tell that my child truly wants to do the right thing, but something’s getting in his way.”
Every time you’ve been just about to pursue an evaluation, your child makes a developmental leap and things improve for a time.
Maybe you’ve enrolled your child in various therapies or interventions, but you’re seeking a broader understanding of how best to support him or her.
At the same time, you may be hesitant to seek help, for fear that an outside professional will not be able to truly see your child as you do.
“You have been so right about so many things. I think we’re at a point now that if you told us to move to the moon so our daughter could thrive, we would.” —Parent of a 6-year-old daughter
