I am currently working with Dr. Kinder because I want to maximize Annabelle’s potential and believe that early intervention is so important. Prior to working with Dr. Kinder, I read many books on parenting children with Down syndrome. Most of the books were overwhelming to me because it provided information on all the things that “could” happen. As a busy mother of three, I don’t want to worry about all the possible challenges that may or may not be in our future. I want to meet Annabelle where she is now and serve her needs in the present time. I am working with Dr. Kinder to make my life easier as I strive to provide Annabelle with the very best. I have learned more in the last month of working with Dr. Kinder than I have in my previous five months of independent reading and research.
