A parent expresses concern because her nine-month-old is not standing yet. She notes that a parenting book she has read indicates most infants can stand by this age. Which would be the most helpful response to this parent?

▸ Based on normative data, your daughter has developed in an age-appropriate way. Special physical exercises and play can further enhance her motor development.

▸ Based on normative data, your daughter is only slightly delayed in motor development. Through a full evaluation we can make certain that there are no physical problems.

▸ Normative charts provide a guide for the order in which skills should be acquired. We should begin intervention to guide her in learning to stand, only after prerequisite skills emerge.

▸ Normative charts only provide general guidelines about motor development. There is much variation in the age at which children begin to stand. Your daughter will acquire this skill soon enough.
