    Default Anyone got flappers?

    Morning everyone
    I've worked a lot with children with special needs so may be overly sensitive to the signs bit I have a lad of a year who flaps when he's excited and is quite slow in his developing (no effort to stand yet but does crawl)
    Anyone else had flappers who were fine? Or who can reassure me?

    This is an interesting and sensitively written article -

    Understanding Hand-Flapping and What To Do (or Not Do) About It « ASpiring Dad

    You'll need to wait and see really if it's a sign of something in the future then there will be other indications which will develop over time.
