  • I am a therapist for children in the state Birth to 3 program. Your child is above average and sounds very smart to me. What we look developmentally for babies age 15-18 months is: Walks alone, seldom falls, scribbles spontaneously, names 1 object, begins to use a fork/spoon, follows simple instructions, builds a tower with 2-3 building blocks, and points to 4 body parts when asked.
