Once a special need has been identified, seek services that will help your baby develop to his fullest potential. Sometimes families think that because the child is still a baby, they should only focus on love and physical care. They believe that learning activities can wait until later when the child starts school. In order for your child to do his best, it is essential to provide developmental support as well as love. The first few months and years of your baby's life are very important to his future development.
