Educate Others

The best way to support your child’s growth and development is to ensure that those around your child understand his or her difficulties and use strategies that help.

Health care professionals: The Health Professionals section on the CanChild website provides information for various professionals that may be involved with your child.

Coaches, community group leaders: Do You Know a Child Who is Clumsy? A Flyer for Coaches and Sports Instructors might be a useful resource for your child’s coaches and instructors.

Extended family members: It is important to share information with grandparents, aunts and uncles, etc., so they can re-frame their thinking about your child as well.
