I had a lot of developmental delays as a child, but I think it was due to the fact that I had an undiagnosed autism spectrum disorder. I didn't learn how to tie my shoes until I was around 16, I couldn't brush my hair until I was twelve, I was still playing barbies in my mid-teens, etc. I was always delayed & was always humiliated by it, but no matter how much I tried, I couldn't figure out how to do the seemingly "simple" things others my age had been doing for years & I was very childlike. My mom just got mad at me over it & yelled at me because she assumed I was purposefully not doing those things. (Why would a sixteen year old purposefully not tie their own shoes????.... but that's what she thought.) I'm still very delayed in life, but that's all due to social issues & not to developmental delays.
