Helping Developmentally Disabled Children Become Functioning Adults

 

As you know, I am a Child Development Specialist and I work with a lot of children with Developmental Delays.  Please check out my new section that explores personal stories of children from Russia experiencing different types of disabilities from autism, cerebral palsy, cortical vision impairment to environmentally caused defects.

I introduce you to each child, give my assessment and then recommend ways parents and teachers can help each child become a functioning member of society.  Some children need extra help in expressing themselves, they need to learn how to socially engage other children and develop their imaginations and learn how to think and respond in new ways. At each visit to Russia, I could see improvements in children and many were placed in regular kindergarten when it was time for them to go to school. Early intervention is the key to getting these kids on the right track.

If you are a parent of a child with a disability, you will appreciate some of the techniques I have found to be promising and helpful.

I know you will find this section of my website, inspiring, thought-provoking and educational.  Click here to begin your journey.  http://turben.com/category/259/Personal-Stories-of-Children-With-Developmental-Delays
