Children Aged 20 Years Cannot Walk?
Assalamualikum. R nI have a daughter .. Age 20 months. Cannot walk yet .. Indeed, from the age of 4 months he did not lie on his stomach … until the age of 9 months I tried to sit him down … thank God he could … Wanted to move by sliding the front and back … That was done until now he was 20 months old … I don’t want her legs to be squeezed upwards .. If you say it’s flaccid (no energy), I don’t think so because she can move her legs to make her swallow .. r nWhat should I do to stimulate her to stand up r nThank you
The development of each child is different. Child development is assessed in terms of motor, communication, cognitive, social and emotional. In children aged 18 months or less, normal motor function development according to the Denver curve should be:
Can walk alone Can climb stairs Can take off clothes by yourself Can eat using a spoon Can drink using your own glass Pulling toys while walking According to the Indonesian Pediatric Association (IDAI), there are 3 factors that affect the process of standing and walking a child, namely:
Child factor: to be able to stand and walk a child must have the desire of himself which is supported by good physical condition and nutrition. The child is not feeling pain, the joints are in good shape, muscle tone is good, there are no primitive movements (normal reflexes are present when a baby is young, but not normal if it persists until an older age), has a good balance, and the ability to perceive space, movement, speed that support. Environmental factors: children are given enough space to move, their favorite toys can be placed in a rather high place to stimulate the child to stand up. Make sure the floor is not slippery and there are no objects that can make the child fall and be afraid to walk. Activity factor: the child is carried too much or uses a stroller so that he does not need to walk anymore to move. Stimulate the child with activities such as pushing chairs / toys that can be pushed. Some delays in standing and walking can be caused by disorders / diseases such as cerebral palsy, muscle and skeletal disorders, Down syndrome, heart problems, and so on. You can further consult with a pediatrician regarding the development of your child. Danger signs that require you to immediately get your child checked by a doctor include:
Movement that is not symmetrical between the left and right side of the body There are movements that are not controlled Muscle disorders, looks stiff or vice versa lingering primitive reflex That is the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
