Special child - a special approach


Your child does not behave like his/her peers - his/her total development lags behind the rules, a kid can not cope with the tasks that are easily resolved by other children. You gradually stat to understand that you child is a special one. To have a child with intellectual disabilities is a big challenge for the parents. It is sad and quite painful to realize that your baby may become a social outcast. However, quite often mental disorders can be corrected.

Mentally retarded children need more time to grasp the material. They have difficulties with the isolation of the main points, the perception of the causality.

On the contrary, these children must be treated in a special and very carefully organized developmental activities, which should be more intense.
