Every child develops at their own pace, so it can be difficult to know whether or not your child has developmental delays. Developmental delays are behaviors in children who experience ongoing difficulties with developmental milestones. The developmental delay can manifest in any areas of development, including movement, speech, cognitive and self-care skills. Developmental delays may or may not result from a specific condition. For children who have been diagnosed with a genetic or chromosomal abnormality such as Down Syndrome, their risk of developmental delay is increased. Other factors that cause developmental delays in children may include exposure to infections that have passed from mother to child during pregnancy.
If your child is diagnosed with a developmental delay, the team at Sovereign Rehabilitation understands how important it is for your child to receive the help they need to improve their quality of life. Sovereign Rehabilitation can help improve your child’s fine and gross motor skills, speech and language, behavior, sensory processing skills, self-care and other issues that may hinder their ability to succeed.
