Preemie and OT questions...

My youngest was born at 30-5 weeks. He also had to have half his lung removed at 6 weeks old. He has overcome a lot! He also has severe reflux and because of that he is always arching and stiff as a board, literally. He is on Prevacid solutabs and doesn't act like he is in pain. He also had a milk/soy allergy and is on Alimentum. He is followed by a ped GI.

He has OT through EI 1-2 times a week. He is 5 months old actual, not quite 3 months adjusted. She is wanting us to work "hard" to get him to roll and grab stuff purposefully.

I have always heard to expect development by their adjusted age. Isn't that a bit much for a not quite "3" month old to do? I have no experience in this area.
