DD is turning 4 years old next month. She has some pretty significant gross motor planning delays, which really give her trouble doing day to day activities. She has severe social anxiety, selective mutism, and not being able to do what the other kids do at the park really does contribute to the anxiety. She can't climb ladders, she's very clumsy.
She has been diagnosed with SPD (non-sensory seeking) and the developmental ped said it's too early for an Asperger's diagnosis, but that it was probable. This was awhile back, a year or so ago. They put her name in the waiitng list for a developmental playgroup but we never were called back.
I just had her do some things... she..
-cannot jump and be in one place, she jumps and lands somewhere else, no matter how hard she tries
-cannot stand on one foot (either foot) unless it is in hoppping
-cannot hop on one foot more than twice
-cannot walk toe-to-heel along a 4 foot line without falling midway through
-she also still does not know how to pedal a bike- she still can't grasp it.
There are several other things, like I said, it affects her day-to-day. Her balance is horrible and getting her dressed is a challenge because she falls over when I put her head through her shirt.
She's also pigeon toed, don't know how much that has to do with things.
We've been given the wait and see approach for everything. Her little sister will be 2 next month and is starting to do the things that she can't.. so I'm worried.
Are there any games that would be helpful for her? We have an Xbox Kinect that we never use- they have that Kinectimals game... could that be of any benefit? She doesn't watch TV and we're in the "waldorfy" bunch, but I'm not opposed to that if it will help some.
