Hello, I’m new to this. I’m a bit overwhelmed and feeling a bit lost and helpless.
I’ve been trying to seek help for my now 3 year old since he was 1. He’s non-verbal and is measuring at around 18 months old in terms of development.
He’s been seen by a Paediatrician, who has told me he is likely to have learning difficulties, but it’s too early to tell, and we must just wait and see.
He’s under speech therapy and has a MyPlan+ at nursery. He’s been referred to Educational Psychology and we’re waiting for contact.
Is there anything else I should be doing? Anything that I can do to help him?
We’re trying to teach Makaton currently, but my son has a very short attention span, making it difficult to get him to just look at me when signing.
I have no one close to me that has been through this or understands it. I’m trying to research and find support to make this experience a little less lonely.
