‘¢ Gross Motor: 8 months

IMPRESSIONS: Morgan is an 8 month adjusted age ex-27 week premature infant. He is a very happy and pleasant baby who was easy to work with and showed good interaction with others. He is showing very mild delays in fine motor skills and receptive language skills (parental report). He has some increased muscle tone that is expected for a baby his gestational age. There were no major concerns. Exercises were given by PT to work on breaking up some of the high tone and toeing. Parents were receptive and open to education and practiced the exercises with PT.
