Baby developmental delays – When to be concerned?

@seacliff – thanks for the information! I just want to stress that some children are slower getting up running than others, but it would still fall within the normal range. My son- now 32- was slow crawling and walking as well as speaking. I think he was laid back! You would never know that now! However, we were recommended to have him evaluated to see if he needed any services. He did get speech therapy for a couple of years. I don’t know if all states are the same- they should be- but if you call the department of health and request an evaluation they will do that at no cost. Also, the state( I think) pays for any services needed up to age 3. From 3 on the school system is responsible. I lived in NY at the time, but it should be the same everywhere. Will you please let me know what you decide to do?

Thanks for your support !!! She seems perfectly okay, but by 18 months most kids are walking, I’m not sure whether I should be so concerned….
