please help! develpmental delay?+scoliosis+ hypotonia

my child is age 3. I discovered that she was suffered from mild scoliosis. Last week, physiotherapist told me that she also has hypotonia. In the past, I don't think she had any developmental delay. But now, I started to worry about it. Because she really had some gross motor difficulties. e.g able to sit by self in the 7th month, walk by self about 15 months. However, she fell onto the floor frequently even she was age 2. She also had difficulties to walk upstairs and downstairs now. She would start schooling at Heep Yan Kindergarten in August, 06. I worried that she could not cope with the school synabus. Should I proceed the further enrollment? Please suggest! Thanks!

Re: please help! develpmental delay?+scoliosis+ hypotonia

scoliosis means deforming of the vertebrae
hypotonia means reduced muscle tone
These two conditions might be caused by malfunction of some parts of brain. It would be lead to delayed motor development.
Please help!

You should bring her to consult doctor to have an entire checking. As u said, the symptom may be related to the brain. Other than that, what u should do is to encourage her to walk even she cannot do it well. It can help to train up her musule, also give massage to her as often as u can. Although, sometimes u may feel frustrate and sad, but she need your support and encourage. I think every mother love her child no matter how worse they are. Be optimistic.

BTW, do you know why the 3 yr old child could not draw the circle properly, may be having developmental delay?

Wendy,

I am not sure whether a 3 yr old child can draw a circle or not, u should better seek professional advice from doctor or nurse in Health Centre.

Re: please help! develpmental delay?+scoliosis+ hypotonia

Your child should take a full asessment by the child assessment centre. The pecedure:1) advice to the private doctor & give the recommendation letter to youu. 2) Bring the letter to the child assession centre to make the appointment for assessment. In the assessment, your child will have have detailed assess by different consultants(doctor, psychologist, physiotherapist, occupational therapist...). I believe they can give you fully support and advice.

What is the nature of Heep Yan Kindergarten? I suggest you to wait the consultants's advice what type of the kindergaren is more suitable for you child(I think Integrated Kindergarden is more apporiate because the service is support for the child having scoliosis+ hypotonia.)
