my 2 1/2 year old son is suspected to be dyspraxic by his slp although he shows no other characteristics beside a speech delay. I enjoy hearing about typical development by age 7 as we are preparing for him to begin school. thank you.
In retrospect, Dyspraxia was clearly present from birth, had we known what it was. Even when he was taught to roll by a Physio at 11 months old, finally figured out how to suck on something at 12.5 months, no-one mentioned the word Dyspraxia until age 3. We are living proof though that with intensive early intervention, a child with severe Dyspraxia can become a "normal" walking, talking, playing, running, climbing child. He's currently 7.
