Ok, first, you need to stop putting your child in a walker. Walkers do NOT help with development, and can, in fact, hinder their development, especially if there is an underlying disability. I am surprised your OT and physiotherapist were not aware of this. Using a walker uses an entirely different set of muscles than spending time on the floor themselves trying to crawl and walk.

With regard to other things causing a delay, I can't say. Talk to a pediatrician.
