My 22-month-old daughter is in PT for gross motor delays. She was evaluated by the state and the evaluation aged her at around 10-11 months developmentally for walking. I made an appointment for her to see a pediatric orthopedic. She is making progress but will not walk without holding onto our fingers. She prefers to scoot on her bottom. She also has a hard time standing on her own. The state program evaluated her and said" Willow demonstrates low muscle tone with an underlying weakness to her core and all extremities." and also " In standing, she presents bilateral genu
valgus and moderate foot pronation with forefoot abduction and out-toeing of her feet
bilaterally." I’m not completely certain of all these terms. I do know that when she walks she tends to drag her right foot and both of her feet are turned out a bit.
She just started cruising a month ago. Just a bit of back story my daughter never crawled she only scoots on her butt to get around. The PT did mention she might need braces for her feet and ankles.
So the plan is to continue exercises with her at home, and pt 1x a week, and a visit @ the ortho.
I’m really unsure what else I should be doing? Any advice or direction would be so appreciated! I feel a bit overwhelmed and not prepared so I’m hoping to connect with other families who have experience in this.
