This month's topic:Is My Child Clumsy — or Something More?
Children with balance or equilibrium disorders can sometimes be described as “clumsy” and have gross motor delays, such as delayed crawling or walking — which can also impact their reading abilities. These disorders can be tough to detect in kids, so how do you know if you should be concerned? Jenne Tunnell, Au.D., audiologist with Mayo Clinic Health System, will discuss things to watch for, tips and how to access the right care if needed.
