An interview with a parent who experienced some difficulty getting the help that she needed for her child. This is the reason why we would like you to consider speaking with a parent when you have concerns about a child’s development. It’s a remarkable story of a parent’s journey attempting to get help for her child. She saw pediatricians who didn’t listen to her concerns. She explains how it made her feel about her own possible failing as a parent and how the system failed her. She also has some positive things to say in her encounter with professionals. We think this is important for you to see as you may get a parent who has concerns. We’re hoping that that after you watch this you will have a deeper understanding for a parent’s experience and have that empathy for emotions that parents go through at each stage of the process. You might get an idea of how you can help a parent as they start thinking of the possibility of their child having some developmental problems.
