I now evaluate children for possible developmental delays through the Child Find program in Houston County....I am thoroughly enjoying working with the 3 and 4-year olds, their parents, pediatricians, day cares, head starts, and whoever else refers a child because of concerns regarding development. This Friday, December 10th, we are beginning a Play Group for children that we are monitoring (called Progress Monitoring) - this is especially for children that are not enrolled in a preschool or day care and would benefit from the socialization with other children. It will also be a wonderful 'source of support' for parents of special needs children.
During this hectic time of year, take time to remember how special your child and family are....reach out to someone less fortunate! We are buying toys, sheets, outfits, etc. for a family of five. I also just heard about a family who lost their home in a house fire last weekend....it was the home of a grandmother raising her three grandkids......'tis the season of love and giving so reach out to someone and make a difference!
