My 3 year old was diagnosed with severe global development delay today and possible ADHD. Just wondering if anyone else has a child with this and has any advice? Thanks

I don't have a child with this but just wanted to respond. Hope you're travelling okay.

Thanks Melstar. It’s a bit of a relief to be honest to finally have a word/diagnosis

Hi. You might get more responses if you ask a mod to move this to the Babies and Kids with Disabilities forum.

Hi I am not a parent of but a teacher who has taught children with this diagnosis. In fact I have one in my preschool class this year - he's delightful a sweet, sweet little boy.

His parents have accessed a lot of early intervention and he sees a speechie & OT weekly and a physiotherapist fortnightly.
He receives NDIS funding. At this stage he is looking at mainstream schooling with assistance.

Just wanted to offer support. Mine all have ASD.

Early intervention is really valuable, but you will never know less about it than you do right now.  It's ok to take a bit of time to process.

Would you mind sharing what the early signs were for your son?

Main thing was his speech but as he’s gotten older the gap between him and others his age has gotten more obvious
