Welcome to the board.
I have two DCs - DD, 5, has speech and language disorder and "autistic traits", but still a sweetheart, happy little girl, DS, 2, we think is NT, usual stroppy toddler, generally cute and a complete pickle.

mumgoingcrazy Thu 04-Jun-09 19:53:14

Hello, same as you really, DD2 (2 next week) has GDD and Sensory processing disorder. I also have another DD age 4 (NT).

This board has given me more support than anywhere else. It's amazing.

feelingbetter Thu 04-Jun-09 20:04:15

My PFB DS will be 1 soon, still awaiting diagnosis and prognosis, but has severe brain damage, some level of visual impairment, GDD, epilepsy and some other stuff thrown in for good measure.

He is stunningly gorgeous, stubborn, spoilt stroppy, funny and an absolute pleasure to be around (most of the time).

Same as others, would still be aimlessly wandering around my pit of despair and worry, if it wasn't for this board and the help and support I've had over the last year.

Glad you've joined us x

StillUnderThirthy Thu 04-Jun-09 20:42:59

My two years old dd brings me here, brain damage at birth, gdd, non-verbal yet, glasses (althought I usually don't mention them because really who gives a hoot really, in regards to everyhting else...).

Hi and welcome. I've got an 8 year-old who's NT, and a nearly 3 year-old with GDD who's the cutest little girl in the world!
