Previously, thousands of children with TMDD were diagnosed as “unteachable”, “unpromising”.
😥 Previously, we met with a problem when children at the age of 12 did not know how to brush their teeth, go to the toilet themselves, wash their hands, dress, put on shoes and eat on their own with a spoon. Even the baby’s skills were often absent – to turn the head to the sound, for example, or to hold the head. Now, we can teach these children 624 skills of cognition, speech, movement, socialization and self-care. And not even we, but the parents of children with TMND themselves. And we are here to help them!
