My name is Stephanie. My husband Jon and I have a beautiful soon to be 3 year old daughter named Aleksia. She is incredibly sweet and socialable. She is happy all the time and loves being around people. She has always been very good natured and easy going. We noticed that something wasn't right when Leksi didn't meet her milestone of crawling on time. She didn't crawl until she was 18 months old and didn't take her first steps until she was 22 months. She was diagnosed w/ hypotonia (low muscle tone) @ 12 months but I felt there was more going on. She has had every test under the sun and thankfully everything has come back normal. Her current diagnosis is developmental delay, dyspraxia, and slight ataxia. She is going to the special needs preschool in our area and making HUGE progress but she is still not talking and falls due to being unbalanced. My mom's group is wonderful but I would LOVE to talk to someone who has a child w/ special needs like mine.
