I have an 11 daughter who is developmentally delayed. She was exposed to many substances while her bio-mom was pregnant, most especially alcohol. I have tried to find group for her but she doesn't seem to fit into any specific group, as far as finding a support group for her needs. She does well with most everything and has friends but it has always been my hope to be able to find kids (girls would be best) that she could befriend that are more like her. She does not have behavior problems. She is involved in activities but the biggest problem is that she struggles to keep up with her "typical" peers, If we put her in programs for special needs it does not challenge her, she is too advanced for these programs. Her friends are starting to mature a bit faster than she is and I am feeling her pain this summer. We were wondering if there are any other kids in our community with the same situation. I live near Dayton Ohio.
