Does Your Child Have Global Developmental Delay (GDD)

What is Global Developmental Delay?

Global developmental delay (also known as GDD) is when a child is not meeting the milestones that a child of the same age would normally meet. GDD can apply to physical, learning or communication delays. It could be short-term, significant or profound.

Our guest today explains what profound Global Developmental Delay means for her daughter. Her daughter is about to turn 5 but as she has GDD, she is typically operating around half her age.

In terms of physical milestones, her daughter learned to walk at 3 years and 9 months (amazing!) and this was even more emotional and exciting for our guest due to the GDD diagnosis.

A child with Global Developmental Delay requires more support, provisions and therapy to help them thrive and reach their highest potential. Your child could experience short-term or long-term GDD.

Being a parent of a child with GDD may be full of challenges but your child chose YOU to help them. You are an amazing Mum. Get the support you and your child deserve and focus on creating a happy life. I learned so much in today’s episode about GDD and you will be totally inspired by today’s featured Mum. She is beautiful inside and out and I hope you will take her perspective and experience of Global Developmental Delay into your own life.
