What is your experience with children with global delays catching up?
My daughter is 23 months (21 adjusted) but is measured at a 10.5 month age range. Her developmental pedi explained that they will test her again at 3 years old. If she isn't measuring at least 70% by then, that is when they begin to worry that she will not catch up. Current calculations: 10.5 divided by 21 months is 50%. (They will only adjust until she is 24 months) So looks like she has a bit over a year to catch up. What experience have you had with this time table?
She received PT (1x week) & OT (2x month) from the time she was 3 months old until Aug 2010 from ECI with little to no results. From that point on, I switched to a private company that now comes out 2x week for PT and 2x week for OT, added a pedi chiro and Anat baniel Method lessons and from Aug-present she went from not even sitting unassisted to sitting unassisted, getting into the sitting position and crawling position, to commando crawling, crawling and is now pulling to stand and beginning to cruise. I just hope that now that she has "taken off" so to speak, she will be able to catch up with her other delays- speech, walking, fine motor skills ect
I threw milestone expectations out the window a long time ago but just want to hear from other moms feeling the same way. Hopeful.
Thanks for reading.
