Jaidyn's Diagnosis

I posted this in the speech, language forum, but so far no one has replied yet.


My grandson, Jaidyn, has been receiving physical, occupational, and speech therapy since before he turned one.  I was pretty sure he had CP because of his difficult birth, but he had appointments with four child developmental specialists on Tuesday August 6th, 2013. These specialists were in the fields of speech, hearing, co-ordination and language.  He was diagnosed with Developmental Coordination Disorder and Receptive/Expressive Language Disorder.

What does this mean for his future?  Will he grow out of either of these disorders?

I understand your concerns, it sounds like the therapy he needs will help immensely. The coordination and speech therapy in combination with any private therapy services you can afford will be totally worth it. Many children, with help, can effectively overcome these conditions in their childhood years and live normal, healthy, active lives. Good luck!
