Dear parent, carer, educator and concerned individual out there, it is very possible that you may notice an unusual pattern with a child’s development or learning process. Whilst your concern for the child may be genuine and is understandable, it is important that you don’t raise false alarms or give false hopes to anyone in a bid to appear competent and knowledgeable. There are professionals who are trained to diagnose developmental conditions in children. Please see the guide below for professionals who can help with issues related to a child’s development and learning. Let us try and refrain from giving diagnoses that we are not qualified to give. It causes undue pain.
