To Parents & Teachers:


Sometimes we sense that something isn't right at a gut level long before a diagnosis is possible. No parent wants to believe something is wrong with their child so they often push these thoughts away. Often we can't find the words to communicate our concerns even if we wanted to. Today I want to share with you warning signs that I really wish I had known about when my children from 3 to 4 years old and up. At early ages so many simple, fun activities could be done to develop skills needed for early learning. Do yourself and your children a favour by checking out our "Warning Signs Checklist" today. The sooner you address these areas, the lower the likelihood your child will struggle to learn.
