There are times when parents are told of a possible delay in their child’s development and a parent responds with:
“But my child is really smart. She/he can _________.”
We believe you when you tell us this. Why?
Because a developmental delay does not mean that child has lower intelligence. Children can have a delay in one or more developmental areas and be of average or above average intelligence.
Entering the early learning program does not mean your child has a lower IQ. Entering the early learning program means you are wanting some extra support and strategies in helping your child reach his/her fullest potential in this life.
