Left and Right Cerebral Hemisphere - Learning Disabilites?
Dear Helen

Our 8 months old daughter, Vigga, has for quite some time been able to go in a crawling position where she rocks back and forth. She moves forward really quickly but is not crawling in the real sense of the word, i.e. making cross-crawl movements.

Her motor skills have been developming according to her age just fine and she has also started to pull herself up to a standing postion when supported.

We have discussed one thing, though, whether it is correct that should a baby not learn to cross-crawl are in greater risk for learning disabilities later?

I take this opportunity to thank you for all your helpful replies you have sent us in the past, they have all been very useful and helped us through many a hard time!
