Watching your child grow and develop is one of the joys of parenthood.

Sometimes you may notice your child can't do the same things that other children his or her age can do. Don't panic there's help.

Call your local school district or the local education service cooperative for information on services available for children or adolescents ages birth to 21 years, who have special needs.
