Physiotherapy can play an important part in supporting children with Developmental Delay. A child can have a developmental delay when they are not reaching certain milestones at a similar rate to other children their age.
In simple terms, Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) means supporting children who are not developing at the same rate as their typically developing peers. It is specialised support which helps children to improve their development, increase their wellbeing and helps them to participate.
If your child has been diagnosed with diabetes you need to seek the appropriate support from health professionals. You should seek to get a diabetes management plan in place and ensure that everyone in your child’s support network understands their role in supporting and managing your child’s diabetes.
Developmental Delay is a general term that is used to describe when a child shows delays in development. When a child is aged between birth and six years old, their brains and bodies are growing and developing at a rapid rate. It’s in these early years that children develop the foundations for many skill sets that they will use later in life.
