When to Seek Medical Care
Children with this disorder should receive treatment as early as possible to prevent secondary complications such as academic failure or social withdrawal, which are all well described but preventable consequences if intervention occurs at an early age. Any neurological or motor abnormality should be investigated fully; however, it is important to remember that different children develop normally at different rates. For example the vast majority of children who refuse to walk by 18 months of age are normal, and only a very few are diagnosed with true motor delays.
