I'm looking for advice from a pediatrician who can help give us advice to help our son walk. He's 18 months old already and continues to crawl. He can walk when he's holding our hand but is very reluctant to let go and do it on his own. He has taken a few steps by himself on various occasions but this has been with a lot of effort and encouragement from us his parents. We are a bit worried as he is late in walking on his own. I don't think there are any developmental issues as he is physically strong with no apparent problems and he is speaking around 7 - 10 words and very aware. He is a bit slow as he didn't crawl until he was 12 months. There is also one other issue we see with his left foot. It tends to turn out when he walks and sometimes causes him to trip over it a bit.
We are expats living in Saudi Arabia and frankly I just don't have that much faith in the doctors here and would like to get some professional advice to help our son. I don't believe a developmental pediatrician is the answer, yet I'm not sure who to see. Is there a specialist that deals with these kinds of cases? And should my son get corrective shoes especially for his left foot?
Thanks,
David

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
