The Amazon Kindle

Kindle E-reader, 6″ Glare-Free Touchscreen Display, Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers (Previous Generation – 7th) (Electronics)

Jumpstart – The Resource Guide for Parents with Developmentally Delayed Children (Paperback)

This book is about coping with Developmentally Delayed Children. There are many different kinds of developmental delays and there is a broad spectrum. The purpose of this book is not to address specific medical issues. Instead it has been written to provide encouragement for parents, like the author, who are trying to find their way on the broad road of childhood conditions. Growth is not necessarily standard in children, especially in our children. The author sincerely believes the timetable that they follow is their own. If you have found your child to be developmentally delayed, this is a great support book.
