INFANT CHILD DEVELOPMENT
For several months you have been working closely with 30-month-old Christian and his family. Christian is non-verbal, but his receptive language abilities are developmentally appropriate. Previously, his parents were hesitant to consider that Christian might be showing signs of a developmental delay and stated that they wanted to wait and respect Christian’s natural pace of development. However, as Christian approaches his 3rd birthday and is using only guttural sounds and gestures to indicate what he wants, they are noticing that he is engaging in more problem behavior and is experiencing prolonged tantrums. They are now ready to consider your suggestion to refer him to the regional center.
Use Westside Regional Center’s website ( https://westsiderc.org )and research the referral process and what is included. Draft a one page letter to Christian’s parents letting them know what to expect and how to proceed with contacting the regional center to request an evaluation. What do they need to know about or prepare?Be sure to support their decision and offer some reassurance of your support. Also, be sure to share some useful resources with them.
