Unusual Pointing

Video Summary

Dr. Christopher Smith discusses key differences in the pointing employed by a typically developing child and a child with neurodevelopmental delays. Whereas typically developing children will regularly request or locate objects by pointing with a single, clearly extended index finger, children with developmental delays may instead reach with their whole hand.

"Tommy pointing with his whole hand extended.(is)...an indication that there is a neurodevelopmental disorder present.."
— Christopher Smith, PhD
