I started walking at 16 months, my eldest son started walking at 16 months. My youngest is 15 months and is showing all the signs that he will walk soon, but his doctor still wants to refer him to early intervention. I explained to her about myself and his brother and the genetic "delay" but she insists. I think he's on par. She even made me pay for an xray some time ago for his leg, which was fine. She thought his leg looked stiff or dislocated and that's why he wasn't walking yet. But the xray showed his leg and hips are fine. He's just not walking yet.

IT can't hurt, why not just do it?

Try a new dr if this one is not what you want.

She already put in the referral without listening to my reasoning

My nephew didn't start walking until a few days before he turned 16 months. My 13 month old is still too wobbly to work much. What are they doing for him there?

Because it's uneccessary and makes me takes unpaid time off work. And I really don't want to have to deal with the health department again.
