If your child is young and you suspect there might be something wrong, immediately seek early intervention services for your child.
- Ask your child’s pediatrician to put you in touch with the early intervention system in your community or region
- Contact the Pediatrics branch in a local hospital and ask where you should call to find out about early intervention services in your area.
It is very important to write down the names and phone numbers of everyone you talk to. You can use this Parent’s Record-Keeping Worksheet developed by NICHCY to keep track of this important information. Having this documentation available will be helpful to you later on.
