My Grandson

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 forgot to mention that Jaidyn is now 2 and 1/2 years old. I posted a lot of my concerns under the nickname Dixie51.
