As readers of this blog will know, my eldest daughter has Global Developmental Delay. At two years, ten months, she is still largely non-verbal. She is around 12-18 months behind her peers in her overall development. Some areas are more advanced than others, but that’s where she sat as a ‘whole person’, when she was last assessed in January by the paediatrician.
She is also a summer born child, with a birthday in the middle of August (she was due on the 7th, but she’s her mother’s daughter and turned up very late).
