Development issues

Hi my son is 2 next week! I'm at my ends wits! He is very behind on his motor skills and his speech and also his development! He's not walking yet he can pull himself up and cruise around furniture but can't stand alone! He wasn't sitting up till 10 months and started crawling at 16 months, he says one word which is ma... He can't hold pencils/crayon ect or feed himself using fork or spoon I'm not sure if he can't do it or won't do it, it's hard to communicate as he doesn't even point at things he needs or wants he doesn't even cry for something I just have to guess, he just started going through a phase of smacking which I think is down to frustration, doctors don't seem to be worried! We have been waiting for an appointment from pediatrician for 11 months which finally came through the post yesterday so hopefully we can get some answers... Any parents going through same or similar thing?? Thanks for reading... Reece's mummy xx

It sounds like he definitely needs an evaluation and some therapies. In the US, Easter Seals (or a similar group) would help you, but the fact that you had to wait 11 months to see a doctor leads me to question your ability to have access to the necessary resources. Good luck!
