In this short video, child disability experts talk about what to do if you’re concerned about your child’s development. Parents of children with disability talk about getting a diagnosis, following their instinct and getting second opinions. Parents also talk about how they felt when they heard their child’s diagnosis of disability. They say it’s OK to grieve.
