My daughter, 14 months old, has been diagnosed with a developmental delay, low muscle tone, and lax joints. She is receiving weekly PT now and seems to be getting a little stronger through it. She is able to sit without support, but cannot walk, crawl, bear weight,balance, sit up from a laying position, etc. Our concern is that something more serious might be causing these problems. Does anyone have experience with this? At what point is is appropriate to insist on further testing to determine what is going on with our daughter? (We are currently being told to hold off and see how she progresses.)
Thank you for any feedback that you might be able to offer... this is all unchartered territory for us!
