have child 8 years old. He’s not yet talking; he's responding is not like normal child who has 8years old and he’s walking unbalance. Medical report says that the child has developmental delay due to Oxygen shortage during his birth. Do you know any place that can treat this issue?

  • I'm so sorry to hear of this young child's problems. Did the medical facility that supplied this information give you a copy of that report? That's where I would begin; I would contact them first and get a copy of that report! The report should supply the basis and reason for this determination and explain the cause of the oxygen shortage. Further, doesn't this child have a doctor? A regular primary care provider? At eight, the child should obviously have had the usual childhood care such as preventative care immunizations and so forth; where was this care conducted? There's really no more I can offer; I would contact every medical provider that has supplied care to date (with the only exception being, the facility that has that report), explain the situation, and request referrals.

  • I looked at the report you supplied and found these links, I hope you find them helpful. The content in them sounds similar to what your child may be experiencing at present, and experienced just following birth.

I'm unable to access your report attachment (probably because I'm a Mac computer guy...no Windows running...we DO get slammed!). I AM, however, VERY INTERESTED in reading it.Would you mind emailing it to me as an attachment... jonmac391v@comcast.netThanks,John<
