19 Month Assessment Updates

Posted Apr 16 2010 12:44pm
Navya's 18 months assessment was due for over a month. We got it done 2 days back. Well we haven't received the copy of assessment yet. But the Dev Pediac discussed the concerns and her progress.


Navya's 18 months assessment was due for over a month. We got it done 2 days back. Well we haven't received the copy of assessment yet. But the Dev Pediac discussed the concerns and her progress.

Before that let me put some updates here , I haven’t posted about Navya in a long time. Before I get into the Guilt mode. Here it is

Weight: 9.7 Kgs
Height: 73cms
(In last 3 months she has gained 1 kg and height by 3 cms)


Gross Motor
- Nowadays Crawls fast ( actually depends on motivation)
- Navya is cruising onto furniture
- She is very mobile these days, traveling in a car/bus is like a circus
- Walks very FAST if we hold her hands
- Trying to climb onto sofa/beds
We have set May as her target for walking.

Fine Motor
- Pulling/Banging/Throwing she has mastered 
- Can stack blocks with bit of help
- Can draw standing lines and sometimes sleeping lines as well
- Can push various buttons (including TV/AC remotes)
- Plays synthesizer (well ok I call it playing, but otherwise it is called banging)
That reminds me I should upload a video where she is acting like a rock star

Speech
Ah well.. We are lagging behind a lot here
Navya recently started saying Mum Mum
She calls me AMMMM.. Actually she says it to call anyone 
That’s all 

General
Picks up signs very quickly. May be that is discouraging her to speak.
Can sign
1. Murmura (it’s a snack, she like it A lot, rather she is crazy for it)
2. Chocolate
3. Mamma
4. Water
5. Monkey
6. Elephant
7. Baby
8. Corn flakes
9. Bath Time
10. Hat

Can say YES/NO by shaking her head
Can point to 10 body parts
Can point to various day to day objects
In general, Navya understands quite a lot of things. She responds with her expressions or by pointing at objects or with her Yes/No.

Becoming a TV Couch. Everytime we come in drawing room, she makes it a point to point to TV and do dance action.

She has her favourite songs, current favs are
1) Dhan te Tan from Kaminey
2) Uff teri ada from Kartik Calling Kartik
Oh I must upload her dance videos. She is a babe in making ;)
And one more thing, whenver you scold her she looks down. And keeps on checking you till you change your angry expression to a smile. That’s so sweet.

Ok, now about the assessment
1) Navya’s score for ‘the things which don’t require understanding of language’ was 15 Months +
2) And for the understanding of language – it is scatter here
Certain things that she is doing are of a 18 months and certain below 12 months
The biggest concern was Navya doesn’t even babble much these days, the language understanding is very good, then why is she not speaking???
Her eating/chewing/swallowing is also good.
So did a BERA test (yeah, it was due as we did not find any hearing issue with her)

Now, the BERA has come absolutely normal. But now Dr. wants to get it done from some other more experienced technician.

We have been advised to play lot of Pretend play with her, and sometimes let her play on her own (w/o any instruction).
And start a PlaySchool as early as possible. This will give her more exposure.
