I have a granddaughter with global development delay .
Welcome Missy60! My son was originally diagnosed with global developmental delay.He’s 26 now - and has a great personality.It felt like the future was very scary when we first heard that label applied to him, but we are in a much more settled place these days.
How old is your granddaughter? Is this a fairly new diagnosis?
Feel free to ask questions, have a look around the Directory and post any comments and thoughts you have. We’ve had some thought-provoking reflections from some families on this site already.
We hope that you’ll find this a good place to share and get support.
My granddaughter is 6 years and nearly 7. She was diagnosed when she was around 2 years old. She has a great personality.
Hi, that’s lovely to hear.Is there anything we can help you with at the moment? Is your granddaughter at a special school or at a mainstream school?
