Delayed motor development, such as late walking or crawling may be due to several reasons. It could be a simple delay or down to a more severe neurological condition such as baby cerebral palsy and hypotonia. If your baby does not have a neurological disorder, however is exhibiting signs of late development, or you are having doubts about his progress. Our specialist physiotherapists will conduct a complete assessment, create a treatment plan and give you any advice needed to monitor and guide your baby’s progression.

How Our Physiotherapists Treat Developmental Delays in London Belgravia and Clapham

For both late developers or babies with neurological disorders, like baby cerebral palsy, in the same way, our specialist physiotherapists will make a full assessment of your baby’s weaknesses and strengths to develop an effective long term rehabilitation plan. This plan will help your child to achieve their full potential through fun, enjoyable and educational rehabilitation. It is very important for the rehabilitation to be considered as fun games rather than work so that your baby can learn faster and be more attentive during the sessions. The physiotherapist will also show you different exercises and games to do with your child in-between sessions. Parental involvement is very important for the rehabilitation to be successful. The baby needs to feel loved and supported within the best possible conditions in order to progress with their rehabilitation.

What Are the baby milestone ? Developmental steps that baby needs to achieve

Dependent on small variations in the child, neuromotor development stages also called milestone generally occur in a specific order during the first few years of a child’s life. The usual motor development trajectory for an infant is as follows:

At 3 months old:

  • Raise the head while on the stomach
  • Open and close the hands
  • Bring the hand to the mouth
  • Catch and shake objects at hand reach

Between 4 and 7 months:

  • Roll back on the belly on both sides
  • To pull himself to sit down
  • Keep sitting with the support of his hands forward

Between 8 and 12 months:

  • Sit down still unaided
  • Crawl
  • Use his hands when topples forward or sideways
  • Crawl
  • Hold stand up
  • Move from one position to another
  • Walk aided by holding on to objects or when moving objects

Of course, these learning stages may vary by a few months, depending on the individual child’s abilities. Whether your child is exhibiting signs of late development or not, it is always important to stimulate -and yet not over-stimulate them- with the help of games, educational hugs and massages to guide your child towards a happy and safe development.
