Parents responses on how the Developing Childhood Baby Bridges program has been of help:
"This program has helped me to understand how you can help your child with special needs to get to the next step. It's so important. Otherwise it will delay their learning capability. Thank you so much for the amazing work and all the support you have given us." Genevieve
"The program has given me an understanding of how specific milestones can be achieved. It has given me ideas of how to challenge my children to improve their outcomes. This was a wonderful support to me during a very challenging period. Thank you." Liz
"The program has given us new ideas, how to get our child to try and learn new things. Also being able to talk to other parents in the same situation." Kim
