Parents Support Group on 31st January 2015

It was an interactive session with parents and service providers as she highlights on issues raised and faced by parents with regards to their child’s development on speech, language and communication. It enables parents to think through during their decision making processes on whether it is ‘what they want for their child’ or it is ‘what their child needs’.
