Is Holds 2 Blocks A Symptom Of Developmental Delay Fine Motor 11 Mo
Could a facial injury in 2 y.O be the only reason for speech delay? His CT showed no damage. Has had genetic testing. Only delay is expressive language. Receptive is age-appropriate.
We expect babies and children to be able to do certain things by certain ages. We know not every child is the same, and also have to take into account things like prematurity. For instance, most babies are pulling up on furniture and attempting to take a first step around their first birthday. If they get to 15-16 months and aren't doing it, we say that's a delayed ...Read more

My daughter needs help with fine motor skills. Is this a sign or symptom of a learning disability?
Not necessarily: Delay of fine motor skills in and of itself does not necessarily correlate to cognitive delay. It may be neuromuscular in nature or a developmental delay that simply requires some therapy. Important information would include delay in other milestones. Please speak with your pediatrician for further evaluation and guidance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Idevelopmental delay and learning difficulties across the board and language delay , my child is 6 and 22 months behind should school take it serious ?
20 month old has verba, social, and communication delays. Could this be signs of autism and how to differentiate ASD from aa development delay ?
Social interaction : A few things. One it's important to have a hearing test to rule out hearing impairment. A hallmark of ASD is abnormal social functioning such as preferring not to be held or cuddled. Limited eye contact or interest in conversation. ASD often also presents with delays. Delays alone, however, are less likely to have social dysfunction and are usually more specific. I hope this helps. ...Read more
Would a sensory integration disorder be a symptom of Asperger's syndrome? my now 11yr old daughter was diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder 1yr ago. however when I'm speaking to others about her symptoms the first comment I hear usually is 'oh
Hi, : Hi, concur with dr. Rinker. Aspergers syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder. Autism, is the most impairing of the autism spectrum disorders. Pervasive developmental disorder comes next and children with aspergers are usually the highest functioning of three. Children with autism spectrum disorder usually have sensory overload which includes tactile stimulation. I recommend talking directly with your daughter's psychiatrist about how best to deal with her tactile sensitivity. One quick option is the use of a camisole that is made of smooth or silky material as an undergarment. It is likely to create less friction against the nipples without highlighting just her nipples. Additionally, pulling bandaids off of skin repeatedly could be quite painful - especially in a child who is already sensitive. I hope this is helpful. Take care. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
My 7 month old has focal seizures, axial hypotonia and developmental delays. What could this be? Our neuro isn't sure.
Many causes, and: if your child is currently under the care of a neurologist, appropriate testing may include both imaging studies as well as blood tests for intrauterine infection, karyotyping and other DNA tests. If hypotonia is fairly acute onset and associated with lethargy and constipation, consider botulism. Sometimes cause is not found, but early intervention may be helpful. ...Read more
Is palilalia more often related to tourette's or autism spectrum? My child has asd and multiple motor tics started palilalia 6+ months ago.
Statistics unavailab: Palilalia can occur in both. Reports would implicate tourette's as most common, but it has been reported in autism and asperger's. Formal comparative incidence studies appear to be unavailable at this time. Perhaps one of my colleagues in research will comment further. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What else can it be apart from autism and hearing if a 2 year old's response to his name is poor and there is language delay.
Ped dev eval: Your child needs an evaluation by a developmental behavioral pediatrician or pediatric neurologist or speech language therapist. If hearing is definitely normal (s/he responds well to almost everything OTHER than his name), autism is a reasonable concern if other elements are present (poor eye contact, limited imaginative play, poor social engagement). Intellectual disability is an area of conce ...Read more
Mychild has mild hypotonia in legs only, he is 10 months old, normal MRI and spectroscopy, delayed motor skills only, what could be the problem?
Many things: If his other milestones are normal then this narrows it down a bit. We want to know details of his birth history, early life, nutrition factors, overall growth, and family history to just name a few things in order to figure this out. Is the motor skill delay progressive? (is his muscle strength WORSENING?) Or is it static? Could be many reasons at this point, these answers will guide diagnosis ...Read more

Baby boy is a 1month+5days old and he won't look anyone in their eyes. Is it true that is a sign of Autism or Developmental delays ?
Concerning: Visual development in infants is stimulated by contrast, so young infants will often look at the edge of your face or head rather than the eyes, but some brief eye contact, particularly when nursing, is expected. Pediatric ophthalmologists can evaluate your baby for vision loss, otherwise careful monitoring by your pediatrician can help early diagnosis of autism. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What r causes of isolated expresive speech delay in 2 yo could it be trauma when nose broke? Brain CT normal. history of bad glue ear and t&a removal
A mix of genetic &: environmental factors cause Expressive Language Disorder. The same number of ear infections occur in Preschoolers with & without ELD. When hearing returns to normal after Conductive Hearing Loss, linguistic impairments from CHL also stop. Multiple genes have been found for ELD in family linkage studies. Other perinatal risk factors contribute, like prematurity. A nasal fracture doesn't cause it. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Yes but . . .: I can't diagnose any loss over the internet! my recommendation is to document your concerns w/your family physician and ask for referral to an occupational therapist for an evaluation. At the very least, you can determine your current status and use this as a baseline for repeat assessment in 6-12mo or so. If there's an obvious deficit, then your doc can initiate an evaluation and/or refer to neur. ...Read more

No: The deletion defect is present in every cell of babies body. Its eventual effect on function will be variable.The only data you have from an MRI in this case is that the parts are there in the proper size and relationship with one another.It could have revealed a deformation in structure, but did not.The presence of developmental delay is your best indicator to expect problems later. ...Read more
