No my daughter is not mentally retarded she has delays. Example:
reading she is about a 1st grade level reader. My daughter is in
mainstreamed at school.Alyssa did not walk on her own until she was
about almost 3 and did not crawl just rolled.
Is your daughter wearing braces now my daughter was 3 when she got
her first braces they were ankle size no bigger now they are mid calf
and hinged to stop her from locking her knees back when she walks.
What kind of school is your daughter going into? My daughter
started school when she was 3 and it was a reagular school but she
was in this program call EIP Early Intervention Program but befor she
went to school she had PT, OT, and Speech at home Birth to Three.
Does your daughter get any of that kind of help? I hope she does.
I am glad that I made you feel better it makes me feel better that
there is someone out there that I can relate to.
