The Lightning Kid's Greatest Milestones
I've often said that Special Needs Parenting is like regular parenting with the dial turned to 11. As such, when your child hits a milestone, it's an even bigger deal. Some of these milestones involve integrating skills in a way typical kids can take for granted.
We engaged with physiotherapy to hit this milestone. We started early, before any delay became too apparent, and were able to have him do only an hour or so a week so that he wouldn't (a baby at the time) get overwhelmed.
2. First Steps
3. Reading Words
4. Riding a Bike

5. Multiple Digit Addition and Subtraction
6. Multiplication and Long Division
I think we're going to be revisiting the latter this year again, I don't think he has this one solidly.
