By Lyn Waldeck Our story, which by no means is at its end, began in the mountains. To be specific the Transylvanian Mountains. During Christmas of 1990, a specific child was brought to our attention that was in desperate need of a family. Florin Valc, who later became our son Evan Waldeck, had spent the first two years of his … Read More

Autism Spectrum: “Celeste’s Story”
with No Comments

Beverly G. As of March 2001 NACD has helped my autistic daughter make incredible progress over the past fourteen months. I believe it is nothing short of a miracle. My daughter Celeste was diagnosed as mildly autistic when she was 4 years old, but I had known for some time that she had delays. She was a normal baby, possibly … Read More

An Impossible Dream?
with No Comments

By Ann B. Martin, mother of Katherine, UPPED One day at church, a fellow parishioner observed my then 7 year old daughter’s awkward Galt, her flapping hands, and her loud wordless groans. She asked me if I had ever heard of the National Association for Child Development (NACD). This nationwide organization teaches parents how to utilize a multitude of therapies … Read More

Developmental Delay: “Stephanie”
with No Comments

Stephanie seemed to arrive on this earth like an angel without wings to fly. This blonde-hair blue eyed child passed routinely through her early years with hardly a spoken word to anyone. Her outward behavior appeared normal for one her age, yet her continual lack of speech and the inability to comprehend even the simplest of words raised anxious thoughts … Read More

John and the Art of Learning
with No Comments

by Jenny Marrs When John was born in the fall of 1994, we were devastated with the diagnosis of Down syndrome. We were so scared about what kind of future he would have. Among the tons of literature we were given to help us understand Down syndrome, I found no silver lining, and I only became more fearful. Not only … Read More

On June 8, 1992, at approximately 2 p.m., one of the most beautiful babies I had ever seen was placed in my arms. As I looked into his beautiful blue eyes, I felt he was … Read More

Coma/Head Injuries: “Camron”

Paul and Ann Stephens As I write this account, it is the day after Thanksgiving, 1996. How far we’ve come. How thankful we are that we found NACD. On August 23, 1993, our son, Camron, was hit by a car while riding his bicycle. He sustained serious head injuries and was comatose for four months. After 10 weeks at our … Read More

Minimal Brain Dysfunction: “Philip”
with No Comments

Philip could not speak to be understood until he was four years old. At that point there were only a few words that someone besides myself and his Daddy could understand. We were very concerned. He couldn’t stand noise and began making dull repetitive noises when confusion surrounded him. Lots of pieces to Philip’s puzzle were not on the table. … Read More

Learning Disabilities: “John”
with No Comments

Our three children were classified by the school system as learning disabled. One as neurologically impaired and two as perceptually impaired. As a young mother I believed the school system wanted to help our children succeed and agreed to self contained classrooms for two of the three and supplemental for the third child. This began a learning process, not for … Read More

Learning Disabilities: “Chris”
with No Comments

In April 1990 we were first introduced to Bob Doman’s program through prayer on our son’s behalf and the referral from some friends. Prior to this our son had been evaluated at age three with intelligence testing; screened for allergy sensitivities at age 7; and participated in vision therapy at age 8. All of these measures were somewhat helpful but … Read More
