Today was Little Gnome’s development check as some of you know I was really worried about it and most definitely not looking forward to it, as I knew it would highlight all his problems
Well it went pretty much the same as I expected.
The first test was grip and pincher skills, he could use his left hand to get things but not his right, he did transfer things to his right hand.
He can’t turn pages of a book , nowhere near that stage.
He can’t sit unaided in turn feed himself, sit in a high chair in fact we are in the process of getting a chair from the Occupational therapist.
He certainly can’t stand or crawl.
He can’t talk so been referred to a speech and language therapist.
he can’t pull himself to sitting needs support
So you see he can’t do things a normal 1-year-old would do.
The outcome is his development skills are around that of a 8 month baby, his muscular skills non existant. I am being referred for the keyworkers scheme as she could see we would have a lot of agencies working with us again!!!!!
So here we go again for a third time all aboard the rollercoaster
