Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist 's  Response

yes, ur child seems to be the case of "Delayed Milestones"/C.P(Cerebral Palsy). he requires a proper & regular Rehabilitation(Physical therapy/Physiotherapy) at some good renowned centres, which may help your child gaining some major functions. Make sure that the Therapists are well trained in Neuro-Pediatric rehabilitation.
The rehabilitation may include various techniques as well along with physical exercises:
1) NDT(Neurodevelopmental Technique)- it helps in weight bearing and gaining some major functional movements in the body.
2)Sensory Integration(SI)- helps the child to get connected with the outer atmosphere/environment, maintaing balance and euillibrium.
3)many other physical techniques which helps enhancing Hand-eye co-ordination, Hand-mouth and above all rehabilitation of the child
Li'l more history is required for me, Rest you'll come to know when u approach the therapist. The centres also have their sppech and occupational therapits too.
According to me, you should have approached to a therapist earlier, that would hv proved more beneficial....but nevertheless, approach soon.
I dont know ur location, if you are nearby bangalore city, thn yes, going there and approaching some good centres(NIMHNS) will definitely help u out.

Take Care and gud luck
