    • (Ex: handwriting, ball skills, bike riding, late with sitting or crawling)
  • Difficulty with transitions or changes in routine
  • Difficulty stopping an activity, needs “warning” about upcoming event
  • Delayed skills or poor coordination
  • Inappropriate, unusual, or repetitive behavior patterns

  • Poor organizational skills or attention skills
    • (Ex: forgetful, loses track of items)
  • Extremely picky eating patterns/habits
    • (Ex: limited diet, gags with food)
  • Avoidance of activities in which children the same age are usually proficient
