    My 13 month old doesn't crawl or walk.

    My 13 month old son won't crawl or walk. If he is lying down he can't get himself up into a sitting position. He doesn't push himself up onto his knees. He rarely rolls over. We are going to be doing an MRI, some blood work and also seeing a developmental specialist. He is just very behind in his gross motor skills and we've been doing PT for a few months now and he isn't progressing the way the PT feels he should be. The PT also noticed that he's behind in his fine motor skills as well for example not doing the pincer grab and leaving his hands balled up into fists. I guess I'm just wondering if there is anybody else who's child might be going through the same thing or has gone through it?

    Just checking in to see how your son is doing. Mine crawls, but doesn't walk or stand yet at 14 months. Everyone has been telling me to just give him time but I think I need to take him to see a PT.
