Hi there, my ds has always been delayed in gross motor skills. He crawled at 12 months, and at 21 months can walk couple of steps with a walker. He says just 'dada' and 'hiya'

He has been diagnosed with hypermobilty and low muscle tone.
The doctors are doing further blood tests (at some stage) he has been tested for chronosomal abnormalities which came back fine.

Just wondering if you have experienced the same for delays in both, when your dc walked/talked and if there was a diagnosis at all?

I can't help with the testing or muscle tone but my very ordinary toddler didn't crawl until 12 months and walked at 20 months. Started talking more than a couple of words at about 21 months and now at 26 he runs about and never stops talking. Hopefully yours will surprise you soon.

My dd is just about to turn 23 months and isn't walking. She does have quite a few words though and is beginning to string them together to form sentences.

She's had various tests, seen paediatricians, physio etc and there appears to be nothing wrong. It's very frustrating.
