i don't know exactly what kind of delays are discussed on this board. the pediatrician said that my 8 month old son has gross motor delays. he is behind on sitting and crawling, in that fact that he's not. let me know if i've found the right board.


thanks a bunch

Just want to say welcome! We are happy to have you here. Looking forward to learning more about your adorable little guy! Early intervention is a great thing to start with. Did your dr mention this? Kari

thanks so much. my son has been in physical therapy every week for the past 3 months. He has plagiocephaly and torticollis and been in therapy to help his neck with the torticollis. he is also having problems with his weight as well. when we went for his last weight check, his ped said to tell the therapist (he also emailed her) to start working with sitting.

Hi and welcome. Many - most? all? of us have been where you are now. Our path started when Megan failed the gross motor skill test at her 6 mo checkup. We started PT and Early Intervention. Don't worry - most kids aren't as involved at age 7 as Megan. But I definitely know what you're going through. Megan had torticollis too, and we worked on getting her to sit independently and gain trunk strength for a long time. She couldn't sit until 18 mos. She scooted on her bottom, but didn't have the shoulder strength to crawl until she was around 4 years old or even later. She walked at age 4.

I'm thinking this board might suit me as well.
