Isn't 15 months too young?
My daughter is 15 months old and she has qualified for Early Intervention services. They have 'labeled" her with a sensory processing disorder and due to this, a fine motor planning and oral motor planning. Anytime I google it, it takes me towards autism. She is very interactive and engaging and loves to please. Her receptive language is ahead of her age. She responds to her name and smiles at others, etc. I do not know if that is the issue. But she certainly has trouble learning tasks and "figuring it all out". She "just" started poking with her index finger this month (not pointing yet). She just started giving and putting a ball in a box (and not every time). She never babbled as a baby - just started babbling a little bit this month. So she is coming along, but I do agree that there is a motor planning issue. But how do I get more information on that without having to hear about autism?
Also, her OT started talking about a sensory diet, but how do you "reason" with a 15 month old? She won't do what she doesn't want to do and then she avoids the situation. Do kids "grow out of this" as they mature? Will she eventually figure it out on her own?
