Brady is 5.5 years old (6 in October), and he functions at the level of a 15-18 month old.  His speech/cognitive/communication is around 12 months, fine motor at 14 months, social skills at 18 months, and gross motor at 28 months.

I think my 11 year old son is around 11.  Guess I don't know differently.

My 5.5 year old daughter is about 4-5 years developmentally.

My 5.5 year old son is 2-3 years old developmentally.

And my little 5.5 year old daughter is developmentally 12-24 months depending, with 3 month level on using her hearing.

I'll know when I get the results back from her assessments yesterday, but I do know from her 1 year speech eval she is around 13 months for language and I know she's not delayed in gross motor skills and by what was said yesterday her fine motor skills may be more advanced than her chronological age (even though she can't eat with a spoon or fork ... so that confused me)
