certain shoes she can, i have seen her do it. but there are times she wants to be whiny about it and won't do it herself. however i have never seen her put her own shoe on, except for dress up shoes or boots that feet slide into easily.
as far as clothes, i've never seen her attempt to do it herself. when i pull the shirt over her head, she does put her arms through and i have her stand and put her own legs into her shorts or pants but i pull them up for her. however as far as removing them, she simply doesn't. when i ask her to try she has a meltdown. she's always been a very sensitive child!
i should mention that she is slightly behind with everything. speech didn't come in clearly til she turned 2. it was around the same time she was evaluated and the speech therapist said she was just fine. the only thing she lacked in at the time was actually asking for this or that instead of pointing to it. but now if she wants milk she'll say "i want milk". she still doesn't talk as much as she should though, but she has improved drastically.
the left side of her brain was injured when she was 4 months old, and i'm no doctor but i'm pretty sure a lot of her delays are linked to that. even though she recovered beautifully from the accident they did say they don't know what future repercussions will be. she walked at 12 months, and like i said talks "ok". but certain things she can't do. im guessing being able to dress or un-dress one-self is a motor skill involving hand-eye coordination. does the left side of the brain control this? or is it perfectly normal for some 27 month olds to be unable to do this yet?
