"She wasn't the same as my two boys; I thought maybe girls might be slower to develop." "I could tell right away he didn't move and play like other kids." "She liked school until second grade, but then she started to fall behind. She didn't even want to go." "Learning to walk frustrated him; he would lay there and cry." "My happy baby and toddler became a furious and rigid preschooler."
