I have 2 children with gdd, Nicole only has a couple of words and a few signs, Jessica is only 3 and she has no words or signs YET, she just claps and smiles which is very cute. In September both of them with go to the same special needs school with 1-2-1 care. It caters for children with severe needs from age 3 to 19, which is brilliant cause i don't have to worry about changing school when there 11. if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

I have 1 son (3yrs) who is Globally delayed. We do not have a formal diagnosis yet. He was delayed in all his milestones. He walks now but still needs support on steps and very uneven surfaces. No words yet. Does some signing mostly while we sing nursery rhymes Smile But he is a delight to be with. He is very social and loves being around other children. He will start in a special school soon which caters to children with learning disability.

I decided to give up my job and be a full time mum and since then with repeated therapy he has made significant progress.

I would be happy to speak to you as its nice to get input from others in the same situation.
