They’re reading about Dr. Wright in South Africa

Earlier this month Independent Online in South Africa interviewed Easter Seals national director of autism services Patricia Wright for an article called Baby Steps at Their Own Pace. The article was about developmental milestones, and Patricia reminded readers that early intervention is invaluable. She said that if parents have any concerns with their child’s development they should discuss them with a doctor earlier rather than later.

”I don’t want parents to worry for three months and then spend another three months waiting for an appointment with a specialist.”

Patricia told reporters that even something as common as a language delay can be helped by early intervention.

A speech pathologist can give parents tips on how to create a language-rich environment for their child and encourage speech.

Independent Online is a South African online news brand with editorial teams in centers all over South Africa. How cool to think that Patricia Wright and Easter Seals has a presence there!
