any ideas why he'd need to see a physiotherapist? i got an appointment through the post but it had never been mentioned to me before, i am waiting for them to call back to explain to me why he needs it, but i'm not expecting them to ring judging by past experience of contact with hospital.

the only idea i have is down to the fact he sometimes tilts his head to one side and he mainly looks to the left but i dont get why noone mentioned physio to me before!

hope all ok with you and your little ones

Have you compared zach to any of the physical developmental milestone charts? If he is delayed in his gross motor skills, they would be recommending physiotherapy (if I understand correctly, it would be physical therapy, right?) So if that's the case, they probably feel he has gross motor delays? maybe. That's really the only thing I can think of, I know my dd started physical therapy at 15 months, and still gets it, as she still has some gross motor deficits. It could also be preemtive as well. Many VI kids get delayed in gross motor skills because without the visual stimulus, they have no desire to explore, so they crawl, pull up, and walk late. HTH
