A Child With a Mental Condition, What Helps?

Author: Kelley Filice Jensen

Your child needs help? Skip the Child Psychologists and start with a Speech Therapist

Author: Kelley Filice Jensen

It always starts the same for parents.  One day your child does or says something that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and a nagging feeling inside you says, “something is wrong with my child”.  Maybe your child is very young, a toddler, or maybe you don’t get that feeling until he is school age, but no matter when it dawns on you, it always starts the same, “something is wrong with my child”.
