Do you ask...
What does it mean when they say my child is "at risk" or has "special needs"?
When will we get a diagnosis? What does this diagnosis mean?
Why does my child seem different from other children?
Who else has experienced a situation like mine?
Where can I get services for my child and some support for the rest of my family?
How can we cope? How can I get answers?
What can I do if they said my child doesn't qualify for services?
